LISBON, Portugal — Xandr, AT&T’s advanced advertising company and leading Portuguese media alliance Nonio, today announced that members of Nonio alliance will adopt Xandr’s strategic selling platform Xandr Monetize.

Nonio is the largest media alliance in Portugal, representing 85% of Portuguese publishers. It was created to guarantee the production of journalistic and national entertainment content of quality and rigor, providing advertisers with scale and credibility on the open internet. Nonio today has two million registered users via a Single Sign On (SSO) and it represents one of the most important regional examples of qualified audience alliance built on the foundation of publishers’ first-party data.

This streamlined entry point gives Nonio’s publishers the infrastructure to unlock the full value of their premium content and audiences, and to provide consumers with relevant advertising that complements their online experience.
