Nation's Third Largest Cable Operator to Leverage VOD Suite for Tracking Operational Performance, Service Usage Trends, and Long-Form Advertising Campaigns

CLEVELAND, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Everstream, a Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR) company and industry leader of software for broadband network usage measurement, announced that Charter Communications, Inc.

Charter's implementation will involve a wide array of Everstream applications including: Oi™ (Operational Intelligence) for VOD, delivering insight into service performance and the subscriber viewing experience; Xi™ (Expanse Intelligence) for VOD, enabling scorecard comparisons between markets, divisions, regions and groups; ReportOne™ for VOD, engendering a flexible reporting template for key VOD-related consumption and revenue metrics; and ReportOne for long-form advertising, providing immediate, flexible reporting templates for key VOD-related consumption metrics, assets, and associated revenue trends.
