Cox Communications Inc. will deploy Everstream Inc.’s “Data Suite” and “Oi” (operational intelligence) software in its on-demand markets, the two companies said Monday.

The agreement between the two parties covers the MSO’s existing and future video-on-demand deployments.

“By leveraging Everstream's technology, Cox will be able to normalize data from all of our vendor platforms and make it immediately available to our business and operational users," Cox vice president of video-product development Steve Necessary said in a prepared statement.

“Everstream's platform and applications will enable us to understand usage and growth trends from the past to predict capacity planning, as well as provide timely, standardized information and feedback to content partners and advertisers,” he added.
