 SINGAPORE, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern Telecom, a leading global telecommunications researcher and manufacturer, and Folec Communications Pte Ltd. today launched Northern Telecom's Companion family of wireless business communications products in Singapore.
 The Companion system, which was formally introduced in Hong Kong in November 1992, is the first fully-featured digital wireless telephone system available which uses the CT2 (Cordless Telephone 2) Common Air Interface (CAI) radio standard. The Companion system comprises lightweight wireless handsets, radio base stations and a wireless controller.
 Folec, which also distributes Northern Telecom's Meridian 1 and Norstar business communications systems, is offering a promotional package during the launch.
 Companion systems are currently available in Hong Kong, Holland, Sweden and the Middle East. Distribution agreements are pending in the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Companion systems will be commercially introduced in Canada later this year and in the United States when regulatory issues are resolved. More than 200 systems are being installed for trials globally.
 Northern Telecom will demonstrate the Companion system at the Asia Telecom '93 show in Singapore from May 17-23.
