AdMob Ad Network Integration

This guide explains how you can set up an AdMob Ad Network with the Smaato SDK for both Android and iOS platforms.

Client-Side Mediation Intro

Client Side Mediation (aka SDK mediation) enables you to mediate owned third-party ad network accounts. In order to do this, you simply need to integrate the Smaato SDK as well as the respective third party SDK as described. Finally, you will also need to configure your ad network mediation inside of your SPX account via the “Networks” tab.


All libraries need to be explicitly initialized.

Please consult the corresponding AdMob initialization guides for Android and/or iOS.

iOS Mediation

Inside the ZIP file, you will find the following plugins: SOMAAdMobPlugin.framework and SOMAMoPubPlugin.framework.

  • To add Google AdMob and Mopub: Add the respective plugins, as well as the respective third-party SDK.
  • To add a custom SDK network: Append your custom network class to the SOMAMediationPlugin class, and define your public method with a parameter to receive the data you defined in your SPX custom SDK network account.
  • If you want to mediate interstitial ads, please override the presentInterstitial method and implement your preferred interstitial presentation method.
