Support for Other Intel Platforms

In addition to Intel vPro®, which provides full Intel AMT manageability, Intel also provides Intel® Standard Manageability mode, which supports a subset of the Intel AMT functionality.

To detect the level of manageability that your platform supports, you can view the ManageabilityMode field of the ME_System CIM class.

Intel® Standard Manageability

Intel Standard Manageability mode was introduced with Intel AMT Release 5.0 and is available on desktop and workstation.

Intel Standard Manageability supports the following subset of Intel AMT features:

   Hardware Inventory

   Boot Control

   Power State Management

   Redirection

   Alarm Clock

   Agent Presence

   Access Monitor

   System Defense Filters

 Note:

Access Monitor is supported in this mode from Intel AMT Release 6.0. The Alarm Clock (access out-of-band) is supported in this mode from Intel AMT Release 9.0.

Messages displayed by these platforms in the MEBX and the WebUI indicate Intel Standard Manageability, instead of Intel AMT.

Intel Level III Manageability Upgrade

note-icon Note:

Starting with Intel AMT Release 9.0, Level III Manageability is no longer available. 

This SKU was introduced with Intel AMT Release 5.1. It has reduced capability compared to full Intel AMT SKU, but has more capability than the Intel Standard Manageability SKU:

   Release 5.1 – Supports all Intel AMT features except Access Monitor and Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP).

   Release 6.1 – Supports all Intel AMT features except Alarm Clock and KVM.

   Release 7.0 – Supports all Intel AMT features except the following:

   Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP)

   Wireless connections to the Manageability Engine

note-icon Note:

Beginning in Intel AMT Release 9.0, Level III manageability SKU MU and CPU upgrades will no longer be offered.  Level III manageability will only be available to those platforms which already upgraded to it by Intel AMT Release 7.0.


Intel® Small Business Technology (Intel® SBT)

note-icon Note:

Starting with Intel AMT Release 11.5, Intel® Small Business Technology (Intel® SBT) is no longer available. 

This SKU was introduced with Intel AMT Release 8.0.  See Intel® Small Business Technology Platform.

The following Intel AMT features are NOT included or supported on platforms with this SKU:

   Access to the SKU features via an out-of-band network connection

   Remote Access, including Fast Call for Help and Remote Scheduled Maintenance

   Local user-initiated call for help

   Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP)

   Legacy SOAP APIs

   Wireless connections to the Manageability Engine

   WebUI

   KVM

 Note:

You can detect the SKU of a platform by looking for the following CIM objects:

   On an Intel AMT SKU, there will be:

   An instance of CIM_RegisteredProfile with a RegisteredName equal to
“Intel(r) AMT” and an InstanceID equal to
“Intel(r) ME:Intel(r) AMT”

   An instance of CIM_ComputerSystem with an ElementName of
“Intel(r) AMT Subsystem”

   On a Level III Manageability SKU, there will be:

   An instance of CIM_RegisteredProfile with a RegisteredName equal to
“Intel(r) L3MgtUpgrade” and an InstanceID equal to
“Intel(r) ME:Intel(r) L3MgtUpgrade”

   An instance of CIM_ComputerSystem with an ElementName of
“Intel(r) L3MgtUpgrade Subsystem”

   On a Standard Manageability SKU, there will be:

   An instance of CIM_RegisteredProfile with a RegisteredName equal to
“Intel(r) Std. Mgt.” and an InstanceID equal to
“Intel(r) ME:Intel(r) Std. Mgt.”

   An instance of CIM_ComputerSystem with an ElementName of
“Intel(r) Std. Mgt. Subsystem”.

   On an Intel Small Business Technology SKU, there will be:

   An instance of CIM_RegisteredProfile with a RegisteredName equal to
“Intel(r) SBT” and an InstanceID equal to
“Intel(r) ME:Intel(r) SBT”.

   An instance of CIM_ComputerSystem with an ElementName of
“Intel(r) SBT”.
