Intel is releasing the next
generation of its deep-drilling vPro platform for business desktops
The vPro and the Centrino Pro for laptops will be shipped with better security and new virtualisation capabilities.The gear is designed so that system administrators and managed service providers can remotely manage PCs and laptops.
It sits beneath the operating system to provide more functionality and security than is present in legacy boot-up processes like Wake-on-LAN.
The latest vPro platform, which was code-named "Weybridge," uses a Core 2 Duo processor, the Q35 Express chip set and the 82566DM gigabit network interface connector.
