Southern Crossroads

SoX is a cooperative initiative by the members of the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA). Initial support for development of the SoX inter networking aggregation facility is provided by a National Science Foundation Grant.

SoX is designed to facilitate access to current and future highly integrated, digital communications services for education, research, and economic development within the region and across the United States. The mission is to connect both SoX Participants to Next Generation Internet services, as well as commodity services where appropriate, thus enhancing opportunities for collaboration among university researchers at institutions throughout the Southeast in a very cost effective manner. SLR will also connect researchers to each other but with dedicated point-to-point connections rather than shared ones.
