1b - Administration (standalone)

In standalone mode, Smart RTB+ is used as a monetization platform without direct campaigns. There is no holistic yield involved: any unmonetized impressions are passed back to a publisher or other system. After the passback, the publisher or other system can call another monetization platform to try to monetize the impression.
