AMI adds RNDIS Network Driver Support in Aptio V

American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems is proud to announce Remote NDIS (RNDIS) network driver support for Aptio V UEFI Firmware. The Remote Network Driver Interface Specification (RNDIS) is a Microsoft® specification that allows for remote communication between a host server and RNDIS network device connected using a USB cable. RNDIS messages are sent via the host server to the RNDIS device and the host server can provide support for multiple networking devices connected to a USB bus. The support for RNDIS devices in Aptio V is convenient for hardware vendors because with the standardized interface of RNDIS, the need to develop drivers to support USB LAN adapters conforming to RNDIS specification is eliminated. OEMs including the RNDIS network driver in the BIOS allow end users to plug and play with RNDIS supported USB LAN adapters. Aptio V RNDIS network driver also allows the BIOS to communicate with the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) that supports the RNDIS specification, commonly referred to as LAN over USB.[…]
