Agilent Increases Customization of Remote Management Solutions

2/19/2004 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced two new software license packages that provide increased customization of Agilent's remote management solutions and pre-customized solutions to support the new Intel server chipset.

The tracing and debugging license benefits original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who customize Agilent firmware using the software development kit (SDK) by reducing tracing and debugging costs, shortening development time, and increasing the quality of their customized modules. The source code development license enables OEMs to increase customization flexibility in order to differentiate their manageability solutions.

"With little or no additional development investment, OEMs can quickly and easily capitalize on Agilent's manageability architecture to take advantage of advanced remote management capabilities, including serial console over LAN and keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) over LAN, in combination with new servers based on Intel's 'Lindenhurst' chipset," said Siegfried Gross, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Digital Verification Solutions Division.

"We are excited that our customers now have the flexibility to choose from not only basic BMC solutions but also the ability to expand with high-end remote management functionality," added David L. Brown, general manager of the Software Solutions Group of Intel's Software Enabling Division.

Agilent offers a preconfigured version of its standard full-featured remote management card 3.0 (RMC 3.0) to work on Intel's reference design server based on dual Intel(r) Xeon(tm) processors and the forthcoming "Lindenhurst" chipset for dual-processor servers. The RMC 3.0 resides in a PCI-X slot of the server. It provides Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) compliant baseboard management controller features (BMC) and advanced remote management functionality.

Agilent's leadership in delivering these new manageability development tools is demonstrated by the implementation supporting the first PCI Express server, as exhibited at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Feb. 17-19, 2004.

The licenses are available from Agilent at and from Agilent remote management partners (Taiwan: Yosun,; North America: PDSi Systems, Both licenses are complemented by annual support contracts.
