INTRODUCTION

This article describes the Windows Management Framework BITS package.

Windows Management Framework BITS

The Windows Management Framework BITS package provides updated management functionality for IT Professionals. This package includes the Background Intelligent Transfer Service 4.0 (BITS) component.
BITS is a service that transfers files between a client and a server. BITS provides a simple way to reliably transfer files over HTTP or HTTPS. Both downloads and uploads are supported. Unlike other protocols that transfer files in the foreground, BITS transfers files in the background by default. Background transfers use only idle network bandwidth in an effort to preserve the user’s interactive experience with other network applications, such as Internet Explorer. Foregound, or normal, transfers are also supported.
