Abstract

Because of the ever increasing use of communications, word processing and data processing, communication links have had an ever increasing demand. It is foreseen that there will be a greater need for expedients terminals whenever an error or other non-communication status arises so that precious communication linkages will not be tied up unnecessarily. In fact, it is currently a requirement in Germany to provide an immediate disconnect function for use, when necessary, between communicating terminals.
