The Intel® 82573E/V/L Gigabit Ethernet Controllers are compact single-port integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps copper network-connection components for desktop, workstation, and value-server designs with critical space constraints. The 82573E supports Intel AMT, which allows IT to remotely discover, heal, and protect their computing assets. The 82573V supports ASF 2.0 and Advanced Pass Through modes for legacy manageability applications. The 82573L offers lower power consumption for non-managed platforms.
Intel Active Management Technology
The Intel 82573E controller 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. The 82573E is recommended for use on the Intel® Professional Business Platform based on the Intel® 945 Express Chipset family, which supports Intel AMT.
