25 Device CALs for Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 as used software

The prerequisite for accessing all services of Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 available in the editions Standard and Enterprise is, in addition to the actual server license, also a client access license for end devices: the Exchange Server 2016 Device CAL. Only this grants a specific registered computer (PC, laptop, tablet, mobile phone) the corresponding access rights.

In accordance with the provisions of Microsoft license management, the server license for Exchange Server 2016 does not contain any further user rights, so these must therefore be purchased separately in the form of a Device CAL. The registered end device can then be used by any authorized user to access the respective Exchange Server functions.

Used Device CALs for the Exchange Server 2016 Standard and Enterprise Editions are available at a reasonable price from Wiresoft - for flexible, needs-based licensing of the end devices, these are also available individually. As used software, these endpoint access licenses offer the same functionality as the Device CALs for Exchange Server 2016 offered as new via the official Microsoft Volume Licensing Program.

Get the most out of Exchange Server 2016 with a pre-owned Device CAL

The Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 represents the indispensable basis for the control and administration of relevant processes of the communication system in a modern company. The Exchange Server acts as an interface for internal and external  communication and connects all employees or departments across locations, thereby also increasing the effectiveness of workflows: Exchange Server 2016 allows central administration and clear archiving of e-mails and contacts as well as tasks; the integrated version management also improves joint work on documents. In the 2016 version, the number of server roles has been reduced to two in the server architecture: Mailbox and Edge Transport; in addition, scaling of mailboxes has also been simplified and support for cloud services has been optimized. Other features:

  • The eDiscovery search architecture accesses multiple servers and works asynchronously as well as remotely.
  • Contextual filters improve information discovery.
  • Content search is more scalable by increasing the number of searchable mailboxes and archive mailboxes to a total of 20,000.
  • Management for sending data via Outlook 2016 or Outlook on the has been improved by customizable access rights, among other things.
  • Hybrid scenarios for mailboxes are also supported.
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in the Enterprise Edition increases data security, even for e-mails containing potential malware.
  • The Outlook standard protocol MAPI over HTTP optimizes the reliability and stability of Exchange connections.

Information about used Device CALs for Exchange Server 2016 Standard- and Enterprise-Edition at a glance

Device CALs offered as used software at Wiresoft are no different from corresponding new Device CALs, as they offer the same capabilities to take advantage of the features available with Exchange Server 2016 editions Standard and Enterprise. Used software for Device CALs therefore offers many companies and institutions a cost-effective alternative for equipping end devices with an Exchange Server access license. The following overview explains all the advantages and special features.

Microsoft License Management with CALs for Exchange Server 2016

Microsoft License Management explains all the provisions for the supplementary equipment of devices or end devices with access rights for Exchange Server 2016 in the Standard and Enterprise editions, so that users can access e-mails etc. via them. However, such CALs already included in the server license are exclusively intended for administrators and may therefore not be used for Exchange-typical services. Only a client access license such as the Device CAL equips the end device with the rights so that one - or several employees in turn - can use the Exchange Server functions. This Device CAL does not include any additional software besides the dedicated access rights for the Exchange Server 2016 client/server environment.

What types of CALs are available for Exchange Server 2016 Standard- and Enterprise edition?

CAL-based licensing for Exchange Server 2016 in the Standard and Enterprise editions provides accurate management of access rights for all appropriate computers (fixed or mobile) in an organization. The Microsoft licensing model offers a total of two types of CALs for Exchange Server 2016:

  • Device CAL for Exchange Server 2016 for a dedicated endpoint device (PC, Laptop, Tablet, Phone)
  • User CAL for Exchange Server 2016 - for one dedicated user

What are the differences between Device CALs and User CALs for Exchange Server 2016?

Basically, the Device CAL for Exchange Server 2016 does not differ from the User CAL in terms of available features and services. However, there is an important difference in the advantages offered by the respective type of access to the Exchange Server: Depending on the number and configuration of workstations in a company and the workflows in which the Exchange Server is accessed, several employees can share a single end device for this purpose in order to access the Exchange Server in turn, or a single user can use completely different end devices for this purpose.

The end device authorized for access with a Device CAL and Windows-capable can be used by any employee who has permission to do so in order to use the available Exchange services. In a company with shift work, for example, several employees share a single end device to retrieve e-mails, etc., so that fewer client access licenses are required here than with a User CAL.

If this licensed end device can also be used as a mobile device, e.g. a laptop, tablet or smartphone, the respective user can also use it to access the Exchange Server via Internet access regardless of location - e.g. on the road, from another location or at homeOffice. A Device CAL then also offers mobile usage options.

What are the differences between Device CALs for Exchange Server 2016 in the editions Standard and Enterprise?

The Device CALs for MS Exchange Server 2016 offer different functionalities depending on the Standard or Enterprise Edition, for the Enterprise Edition by the higher scalability of the mailbox requests. However, it is possible to also use the Exchange Server Enterprise Edition with a Device CAL for the Standard Edition - with the correspondingly limited functionality of the Standard Edition as well as also the lower number of mailbox databases. The Device CALs for the Enterprise Edition therefore offer, with a corresponding Enterprise Edition server license, an extended scope of services and functions, as is often needed in larger companies or organizations, including data loss prevention.

Note version compatibility of Device CALs for Exchange Server 2016

In addition to available functionalities depending on the edition, the Device CAL for Exchange Server 2016 not only equips a computer etc. with the access rights for exactly this server version, but also authorizes it to access older Exchange versions, such as 2013 (downgrade). However, a Device CAL for Server version 2016 cannot be used to access the higher Exchange Server version 2019 (upgrade).

Therefore, in addition to the features available per edition, purchasers of Device CALs for Exchange Server should always consider the compatibility between server license used and client access licenses.

What else should I consider when licensing Exchange Server 2016 with Device CALs?

A Device CAL for Exchange Server Version 2016 is valid for exactly one end device and equips it with the corresponding access rights. Once registration has been completed, the Device CAL cannot be transferred to another end device. It is also not possible to change the CAL type, in this case: to use the Device CAL as a User CAL.

The purpose of these Microsoft license management provisions is to prevent improper access to Exchange Server 2016 and to provide a company with greater security in communications, as unlicensed computers cannot access email services and server data.

Conclusion on choosing Device CALs

So, which client access license type for the use of Exchange Server 2019 offers a company more possibilities always shows up in the individual case. In addition to the number of end devices that use the Exchange Server, the number of users also plays a role here: as soon as several employees use a single end device in turn to access the Exchange Server, the Device CAL offers more advantages.

Knowing your company's typical scenarios is the best starting point for choosing the right CAL type for Exchange Server 2016. It may be cheaper for a company to license with Device CALs than with User CALs, because fewer access licenses have to be purchased overall.
