In-band is used to differ between an IP address which comes from internal net and one coming from outside (Internet). But that does only make sense on a Router or Firewall.

In band means that management traffic is over the network. In with all the other traffic crossing the network.  Like telnet or SNMP.

As opposed to out of band which would be managing through a console or some other type of port that does not carry network traffic.
