The result presented by the BOSS-SDSS Collaboration measuring the baryon acoustic oscillations of the Lyman-alpha forest from high-redshift quasars indicates a 2.5 sigma departure from the standard Lambda-cold-dark-matter model. This is the first time that the evolution of dark energy at high redshifts has been measured, and the current results cannot be explained by simple generalizations of the cosmological constant. We show here that a simple phenomenological interaction in the dark sector provides a good explanation for this deviation, naturally accommodating the Hubble parameter obtained by BOSS, Hd(z = 2.34) = 222 +/- 7 km s(-1) Mpc(-1). By performing a global fit of the parameters with the inclusion of this new data set together with the Planck data for the interacting model, we are able to show that some interacting models have constraints for Hd(2.34) and D-A(2.34) that are compatible with the ones obtained by the BOSS Collaboration, showing a better concordance than.CDM. We also show that the interacting models that have a small positive coupling constant, which helps alleviate the coincidence problem, are compatible with the cosmological observations. Adding the likelihood of these new baryon acoustic oscillations data shows an improvement in the global fit, although it is not statistically significant. The coupling constant could not be fully constrained by the data sets used, but the dark energy equation of state shows a slight preference for a value different from a cosmological constant. (AU)
