Intel AMT small business configuration mode is easy to set up and is recommended when you have a few Intel AMT computers. You can also use this mode if your enterprise does not have DHCP or DNS services available or if using these services is not allowed for security or other reasons.
This mode does not support Transport Layer Security (TLS), so communications between computers are not encrypted. This mode works well in the environments that do not have a security infrastructure. Because small business mode is designed for small environments, this mode does not support communications across subnets. If your environment incorporates subnets, use enterprise mode.
If you are new to Intel AMT and want to evaluate the technology, you can configure a few computers in small business mode. Small business mode lets you get things set up and running more quickly. Setting up an Intel AMT computer in small business mode is a manual process that is performed though the Intel AMT capable computer's BIOS. Out of Band Management Component is not involved in the configuration process. After setup, the computer is ready to be managed out of band.
