Enabling KVM Redirection Over IP For Embedded Applications
How operating system vendors can ensure compatibility with 2010 Intel® vPro™ technology-enabled platforms
By 2015, it is forcasted that 15 billion intelligent embedded devices will be connected via the Embedded Internet. As the diversity and number of devices increase, so do the challenges associated with managing and securing them. Complicating matters, many embedded devices are in remote locations and operate without human intervention. In response, embedded equipment manufacturers are offering advanced management capabilities that allow Service Desk departments to support devices remotely, saving time and the expense of onsite repair visits.
Providing a significant remote management breakthrough, Intel® vPro™ technology with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) implements a unique capability (i.e., circuit) in Intel® chipsets that can access and control the system, even if it is powered off or in need of repair. The technology has been enhanced with a feature called KVM redirection over Internet Protocol (IP), permitting the keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) for an IT console to control and display the graphical user interface (GUI) of an embedded device in the field. No additional hardware is required. Intel AMT KVM support requires a 2010 Intel vPro technology-enabled platform with Intel® Integrated Graphics.
