About the Intel AMT Environment
Intel AMT lets you remotely access computers when the operating system is not available or the computer is turned off. The only requirement is that the computer must be connected to a power supply and a network.
The Intel AMT environment includes:
• Intel AMT Systems—Computers with an Intel AMT device. The Intel AMT device contains the hardware and software that control the Intel AMT features. The device includes an Intel® Management Engine (Intel® ME) and a BIOS menu called the Intel® Management Engine BIOS Extension. The Intel ME operates independently of the Central Processing Units (CPUs) of the computer.
• Management Console—A software application used to remotely manage computers in a network. The management console must include an interface that can use the features of Intel AMT.
