A Lync Server Standard user client access license (CAL) authorizes one user to access Lync Server from any device. For example, an employee might access the server from a computer at work and another at home.
This donation provides one Standard user CAL. Standard device CALs for licensing computers and additive Enterprise and Plus CALs (user and device) for accessing additional features are also available.
The Standard CAL provides access to the following base features in Lync Server:
- Instant messaging (IM)
- PC-to-PC audio and video communications.
In addition to the Standard CAL, additive Enterprise or Plus CALs might be required for accessing additional Lync Server features.
- Enterprise CAL: For audio, video, and web conferencing; desktop sharing; room systems; and multiple HD video streams. Enterprise CALs can only be used in conjunction with Standard CALs.
- Plus CAL: For enterprise telephony features. Plus CALs can only be used in conjunction with Standard CALs.
To enable all features, all three licenses (Standard, Enterprise, and Plus) are needed.
This license does not require media, license keys, or setup codes.
CALs, ECLs, and management licenses (MLs) offered through TechSoup are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licenses can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.
