Skype for Business Server Device CAL: Standard (Includes Software Assurance)

Product reference: 

A Skype for Business Server Standard device client access licence (CAL) authorises one computer or other device to access Skype for Business Server regardless of the number of users (for example, on a shared workstation).

This donation provides one Standard device CAL. Standard user CALs for licensing individuals and additive Enterprise and Plus CALs (user and device) for accessing additional features are also available.

Major Capabilities

The Standard CAL provides access to the following base features in Skype for Business Server:

  • Instant messaging (IM)
  • Presence
  • PC-to-PC audio and video communications.

Additional Information

In addition to the Standard CAL, additive Enterprise or Plus CALs might be required for accessing additional Skype for Business 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 licences (Standard, Enterprise, and Plus) are needed.

Licence Only

This licence does not require media, licence keys, or setup codes.

CALs, ECLs, and management licences (MLs) offered through TechSoup New Zealand are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licences can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.

Under the Software Assurance program, you have the right to install any new release of products covered in the agreement during the term of your coverage.
