This white paper describes how Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) may be used to perform remote wake functions to wake a PC from a companion device such as an Intel® Atom™ based tablet. We will look at two different topologies for performing remote wake and discuss the three methods of remote wake.
With the release of Intel® Active Management Technology 3.0, network administrators no longer have to physically visit business PCs to initiate the participation of those machines on the management network. This "Remote configuration" capability involves an encryption key being entered into BIOS during device manufacture, which is subsequently used to establish connection between the management infrastructure and the PC. By setting up Intel AMT devices in this way, businesses can save substantially on deployment costs.
Intel® AMT can be utilized by several types of management and security applications such as security and other management agents, firewalls, and hardware & software inventory tracking to help IT improve asset management, reduce downtime, and minimize desk side visits. Read the Intel® AMT Architecture Guide to learn everything you need to know about implementing one or more of the following features in your application.
