This Intel Management Engine has an Active Management Technology (AMT) which has an 82573E controller. This is a key platform ingredient for enabling Intel AMT by providing always-available network connectivity and an integrated management engine. Intel AMT allows IT to discover, heal, and protect all the computing assets on their corporate network. With Intel AMT, IT managers can discover all their hardware and software computing assets. Because asset information is stored in non-volatile memory, IT can read it even if the PC is off or the operating system (OS) is inoperable. IT managers can heal systems remotely through Intel AMT's out-of-band management capabilities, which allow remote diagnosis and repair of PCs after software, OS, or hardware failures. Intel AMT stores software and virus-protection version information that is consistent and up-to-date across the enterprise, helping protect systems against malicious software attacks.
