The Intel 82566 Network Connections are copper networking components for desktop, mobile, work station, and basic-needs server designs with critical space constraints. The 82566DM/MM supports Intel AMT with System Defense to help IT better discover, heal and protect their PCs. The 82566DM/MM also supports Intel Virtualization Technology through the Intel® Virtual Gigabit Network Connection. The 82566DM/MM can also support legacy ASF2.0. The 82566DC supports Intel Viiv technology and the associated software and applications. • Flexible, low-cost system design: The Intel 82566 network components provide a small-package (10x10 mm) networking option for convenient board layout. Additionally, the 82566 network components are designed to be footprint compatible with the Intel 82562V 10/100 Network Connection so that single-board designs can accommodate both Gigabit and 10/100 networking options. Also, to reduce the system BOM cost and space, the 82566 supports an integrated linear voltage regulator. • Intel® business client features: The Intel 82566DM/MM are a key platform ingredient for enabling Intel® vPro™ technology, by providing always-available network connectivity and hardware filters. Intel vPro technology provides built-in manageability, strengthened security and energy-efficient performance. Intel vPro technology is also supported by a wide range of leading software vendors.
