Ad Exchange

An ad exchange is a technology platform that facilitates the buying and selling of media advertising inventory from multiple ad networks.[1] Prices for the inventory are determined through bidding. The approach is technology-driven as opposed to the historical approach of negotiating price on media inventory. This represents a field beyond ad networks as defined by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB),[2] and by advertising trade publications such as Advertising Age.[3]
