Remote PCs come under control
Intel has released details of Active Management Technology (AMT), a specification for a set of hardware components designed to provide remote management of PCs.
AMT enables IT managers remotely to discover and repair many computer problems that previously required service visits.
An IT manager will be able to set up new computers remotely, download software updates, perform asset inventories and find and fix many problems using AMT, said Intel.
Intel said such functionality will be possible even when target systems are turned off.
