Lowering TCO for Digital Signage with Intel® vPro™ Technology
Digital signage systems that are designed to be reliable, secure, and easy to manage will have a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Simply avoiding as few as one onsite repair visit can significantly increase a system’s return on investment. Intel® vPro™ technology provides such capabilities in advanced management, proactive security, and enhanced virtualization. Recognizing the substantial value in reducing support costs, AOpen, a leading manufacturer of ultra-small form-factor computer systems, now offers a variety of systems supporting Intel vPro technology.
AOpen designed Intel vPro technology into the MP67-D/DU*, enabling the platform to support remote power control, scheduled power control, remote access, hardware asset tracking, and system alerts and events, through identifying OS/hardware issues and remote BIOS updates.
A digital signage system with Intel vPro technology delivers three key technology features (see also the table below): Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT), Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT), and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT). Intel has validation labs where OEM/ODMs can have their systems validated for Intel vPro technology compliancy. AOpen leveraged this lab to successfully verify Intel vPro technology compliance for its MP67-D/DU, which is used in several industries, including healthcare, banking, education, transportation, and retail.
