OUT OF BAND Feature

What is the Out of Band??

Think about the situation – your one of the user who is thousand miles from your site and he said “ Hey SysAdmin I am not able to use my PC its show OS corrupt or BSOD (Blue screen of Death.”

It  little bit difficult to manage that PC which is located at too far from your place.

Ok,

Don’t worry now we have a Microsoft based OUT OF BOND utility (SCCM 2007) and Intel Based AMT (Active Management Technology), Microsoft and Intel they works together and provide solution for us.

Remote management of client computers often requires the managed computer to be turned on with an operating system running. When a computer is turned on with a running operating system, the computer is considered in-band.

Out-of-band is when a client computer is in one of the following out-of-band states:

  •     The computer is plugged in but is not actively running (off, standby, hibernating).
  •     The operating system is not loaded (software or boot failure).
  •     The software-based management agent is not available.

Out-of-band management is the ability to manage computers in these states. Out of Band Management Component supports computers with the following out-of-band management technologies:

  •     Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) 2.0 and later
  •     Broadcom ASF 2.0 and Intel ASF 2.0
  •     Broadcom DASH

Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) is a part of Intel vPro technology, which provides the following technology capabilities:

Remote manageability

Let’s you remotely inventory, diagnose, and repair computers—even those that are turned off —reducing costly desk-side visits and increasing user uptime.

Security

Let’s third-party security software identify more threats before they reach the operating system. You can isolate infected systems more quickly and update computers regardless of their power state.

Intel AMT is a solution that is based in hardware and firmware and is connected to the system’s auxiliary power plane. Despite the power state or the operating system state of the client computer, Intel AMT provides IT administrators with access to alerts, hardware inventory, power management, network filtering, and agent presence functionality. Intel AMT functionality requires the computer to be plugged into the power source and connected to the network. Intel AMT functionality does not require a software agent to be installed on the client computer.
