Organizations routinely invest in costly infrastructure such as switches and cabling to provide access to infrastructure devices like servers, network devices, storage, etc. Current management access techniques leverage local area network (LAN) on motherboard (LoM) to interconnect devices. However, LoM requires investment in additional cabling and infrastructure and can be quite costly. This disclosure describes techniques to reduce or eliminate infrastructure cabling between servers, network devices, storage, etc. Per the techniques, network interfaces to a physical cable and switch from a motherboard are supplanted or augmented with wireless connectivity options, e.g., WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.
