  7. 7. Call waiting time made relevant to users, advertisers and MNO‟s Using traditional call waiting time as a advertising channel: • Based on the calling party (A-party) • 100% usage by customer base • No need for special handset, downloaded applications or mobile internet • Feasible for mobile, VOIP and fixed networks Based on customer profiling • Provides customer profile used for targeting ads Non intrusive • Opt in, not “spamming” the customer with sms, mms or e-mail Airtime (call waiting time) • On average 15 seconds of “silence” is no longer wasted but turned into airtime High effectiveness • Forced exposure (no zapping, spam filters, but guarenteed listening audience) • VoiceAds will be replayed if called party is answering within short time (< 5 sec)
