Intel AMT: Setup AMT 2.6 in Small Business Mode


The Small Business provisioning mode is designed to serve the needs of small businesses with a few part-time administrators managing a small network - for example, in a single building. In it's most basic form, this mode uses no network infrastructure services. All that is needed to provision an Intel AMT system in this mode is a PC with a web browser.

Intel AMT platforms arrive at a customer's site from a PC vendor and are placed into the administrator's office. No isolated wired subnet is expected to be used for provisioning in this mode since the entire network is to be treated as an isolated network.
