One service, for example, call Waiting" allows a telephone user to answer a second call while talking on the telephone. This and other new Custom Calling features will be available when Olinois Bell completes the final phase in its Huntley switching office.

"The equipment will serve customers whose telephone numbers begin with 669." "It's a lot like a space shot. Nothing can be left to chance. The final phase of the countdown for this cutover began six months ago with the start of construction of a new building to house the equipment in Huntley." Jozwiak said. According to Jozwiak, the new switching system uses comoputer logic, electronically- stored programs of instruction and microelectronic circuitry to set up customer talking paths. "The new equipment oper¬ ates on a digital basis which means it converts signals into the on-off pulses of computer language," Jozwiak said. "That will make it possible for the switch to handle information more efficiently in virtually any form-voice, computer data, text or visualimages." When a customer dials a local number," he said, "the equipment instantly selects a path to the called telephone and ringing begines at once. It's similar to a pocket calculator flashing the solution to a problem as you press the 'equals'key." Electronic switching makes several optional Custom Calling Services available to customers. This includes the freedom to add a third party to a conversation. To forward incoming calls to another telephone number and to dial frequently called numbers using only one or two digits.
