AppFlood's RTB reach into China is a perfect fit for latest partner Bidstalk

  • Bidstalk's global footprint gives significant boost to AppFlood's mobile ad inventory
  • AppFlood integration boosts Bidstalk's global reach, particularly across China and Asia

London & Beijing, 3 July 2014 - AppFlood (www.appflood.com), the China-based global mobile real time bidding (RTB) exchange, today announced it had added Bidstalk, the mobile advertising and app monetization platform, to its growing list of mobile advertising partners. The deal brings together AppFlood's existing ad network and Bidstalk's white-label DSP solution, which is already processing more than 10 billion advertising bids each day.

Launched in April, AppFlood's mobile RTB is the first to overcome the technical challenges that until now have prevented RTB exchanges from effectively delivering mobile ad inventory in China. Several of the mobile industry's leading DSPs, SSPs and advertising exchanges have since partnered with AppFlood to link western advertisers and audiences to China, and vice-versa.

Chris Hanage, General Manager EMEA at AppFlood, said he's excited to have Bidstalk on-board given its meteoric rise over the past six months.

"China has some of the most successful and fastest growing mobile and lifestyle brands in the world, and they are focused on expanding into new markets through mobile advertising. At the same time, China's 700 million smartphone users are an untapped market for Western brands and companies. By partnering with Bidstalk, we have not only increased AppFlood's global reach, but Bidstalk's customers will now be able to deliver truly global campaigns thanks to our ability to connect than to this rapidly growing Chinese mobile audience."

Bidstalk has grown rapidly since announcing their arrival at Mobile World Congress in February. Bidstalk's white-label mobile DSP solution allows advertisers to place highly targeted smart ads on thousands of premium mobile apps, and its Ad Server allows for maximisation of ad revenues for mobile app developers.

Vipul Jain, CMO and Co-Founder of Bidstalk, said the partnership with AppFlood to boost their access to premium inventory in China and across Asia was an important part of its growth plans.

"Since our launch just six months ago, we've identified emerging markets across Asia as a focus area to continue our rapid growth. We've seen a significant increase in demand for Asian inventory from our advertising partners, and AppFlood's RTB platform will help us meet that demand."

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
