Take Control with the 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processor: Study
Imperial College London establishes remote management of IT resources with 2nd generation Intel®Core™vPro™ processors and supporting software
Since 2008, Imperial College London has been upgrading the desktop computing resources available to its staff and student body with new Windows* 7 machines supplied by HP and powered by Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors. From the outset, it planned to harness the built-in remote management capabilities of the processors to streamline the way its IT team was able to maintain the computers. Using the free Intel® Setup and Configuration Service (Intel® SCS) software and Intel® vPro™ technology module for Microsoft Windows PowerShell* the college was able to quickly activate the remote connectivity features to work within its existing management environment.
• Uniform: Imperial planned to replace its existing heterogeneous desktop computing – around 10,000 machines – over five years with new PCs offering standard computing hardware
• Connectivity: It identified the remote management features in the latest processors as offering an opportunity to simplify everyday maintenance processes
• Simple: It needed a solution it could bring online quickly and with minimal need for customization to activate the remote connectivity features
