Optimera

A new Certified Adapter joins the IX Library™ Ecosystem: Optimera is a non-bidding adapter that provides publishers with insightful viewability data. You may want to configure Optimera in your IX Library if:

  • You have PMP deals setup.
  • You want to discover your ad slots' viewability rates.
  • You want to ensure CPM (cost per impression) rates are aligned with your viewability rates.
  • You need to confirm that you're meeting (and exceeding) the advertiser's required KPIs; and more.

OpenRTB API for DSPs

We are now sending device IPs in IPv6 format to DSPs who are able to support receiving IPv6 traffic.

  • device.ip (an existing field in the device object) has changed from a required field to an optional field.
  • device.ipv6 (a new field in the device object) is a new optional field.
  • Important to remember: we'll always send one of either device.ip or device.ipv6 in the request.

Note: We only send bid requests for IPv6 traffic if you're able to support it. Please reach out if you'd like to start receiving IPv6 requests.

Deal Diagnostics

  • In the DSP tab, as long as the selected deal is actively sending bid requests, you can now send a modified bid request in real time to the DSP. The bid request isolates the deal that you're diagnosing, which checks that the DSP is currently responding to your deal.
  • In the DFP tab, you can now review the DFP win rate of a deal.
  • In the Deal Section Allocation report, we’ve added two new fields. Now you can view 30-day Deal Section avails, represented both as a count and as a percentage of the entire account traffic.
