Our New Name and Look

You may have noticed something different on our blog today. Both the name and the look have changed. T1 Rex’s Business Telecom Explainer is now Telexplainer. It's shorter, easier to remember and more representative of the content and services we present. Six years ago, T1 lines were the mainstay of business telecommunications. Now it’s all about Ethernet, MPLS networks and cloud services.

Similarly, we felt it was time to update the look of the blog to something more contemporary. Templates and coding standards have changed during the decade. CSS, widgets and gadgets are taking over from plain text and hard-coded HTML. You can get presentations today that were all but impossible back when.

Another big change has been the rise of social networking. In addition to RSS feeds, you can now follow us on Twitter. Feel free to share what you discover here with links to your favorite social network or email to your friends and colleagues. We’ve made that easy with a “Share This” widget on every post.

Business technology, including anything Internet, continues to evolve. We intend to evolve with it, while still bringing you easy to understand articles about telecommunication and networking technology. We’re also proud to be partnered with Telarus, Inc. They are arguably the pre-eminent telecom broker, representing dozens of competitive carriers with voice and data services worldwide.

Thank you for reading these articles and coming back, day after day. Your comments are always welcome. Please send them to John (at)
