Group unveils downtown Internet exchange

A consortium of regional technology companies have unveiled NashvilleIX, promising a downtown-based Internet traffic exchange that they say will be faster and cheaper than traditional providers. In the mix are 365 Data Centers, DevDigital, Peace Communications and Enfopoint. Our colleague Kelley Boothe has more info at Southern/alpha.

The cost-structure is most efficient for businesses. Connecting to NashIX is free for early access participants that sign-up by September 30, 2015. Standard pricing for a 1Gbps port is $350 per month. Pricing for a 10G port is $1,000 per month. The port price for the first port is waived for the first year for early access participants. After that, the price per port will be 50 percent of the standard pricing until the traffic on the NashIX reaches 15Gbps at 95P for one month, at which point the pricing will change to standard pricing.

Milt Capps has that info and more — including another capital raise — here.

The UA alliance helped MedPass develop its initial platform by drawing on a formalized team of six UA MIS students, who each work 20 hours per week, with guidance from MedPass engineers and oversight by a sponsoring faculty member, Joanne Hale, Ph.D. The UA MIS students are now working on MedPass iOS and Android mobile apps, which are to be available by late Summer.
