Intel Active Management Technology:
The Intel 82573E controller is a key platform
ingredient for enabling Intel AMT by providing
always-available network connectivity and an
integrated management engine. Intel AMT allows
IT to discover, heal, and protect all the computing
assets on their corporate network. With Intel
AMT, IT managers can discover all their hardware
and software computing assets. Because asset
information is stored in non-volatile memory, IT
can read it even if the PC is off or the operating
system (OS) is inoperable. IT managers can heal
