Device CAL for Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 as used software
For the Standard- or Enterprise-Edition of Microsoft Exchange Server 2019, in addition to the server license, a separate client access license is required for each end device used to access the server services: The Exchange Server 2019 Device CAL equips a specific registered computer (PC, laptop, etc.) with the appropriate access rights for this purpose.
In accordance with Microsoft license management regulations, a license for Exchange Server 2019 Standard or Enterprise does not include any other user rights, so these must be purchased separately, e.g. in the form of a Device CAL. Users can therefore only use all Exchange Server functions via an end device equipped with them.
Used Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019 Standard and Enterprise are available from Wiresoft at a favourable price - also individually instead of as a package. These used Device CALs have the same functionalities as the Device Client Access Licenses for Exchange Server 2019 offered in the official Microsoft Volume Licensing Program.
Get all the new capabilities of MS Exchange Server 2019 with a pre-owned Device CAL
The Windows Exchange Server 2019 runs on Windows Server 2019 Core, providing a reliable platform for enterprise messaging infrastructures. The Standard and Enterprise editions further support them in shifting the focus from communication to collaboration. The following functions and features are available for this purpose:
- Meta Cache Database (MCDB) secures meta-information such as mailbox folder structures and accelerates access and content search.
- Dynamic Database Cache (DDC) dynamically adjusts storage capacity to make better use of it and increases the speed of Exchange Server.
- The new search index resides in the database of a mailbox, which greatly simplifies management and increases search speed.
- The Windows Server Core allows you to run a standard version of the server system in a simplified manner. This simplifies configuration and provides greater security against intruders.
- Client Access Rules provide enhanced options for limiting access to the Exchange Server configuration area.
- New calendar enhancements, particularly for organizing meetings, including Default End Date, Do Not Forward, Improved Calendar Management, and more options for configuring out-of-office messages.
- Improved document collaboration with the ability to upload and store files on OneDrive for Business.
The most important Device CALs for Exchange Server Standard- and Enterprise-Edition 2019 as used software at a glance
Device CALs from Wiresoft offered as used software have the same access as corresponding new licenses to use the features available in each of the two Exchange Server 2019 editions. Used Device CALs are an inexpensive option, especially for SMEs and organizations, to equip the corresponding end devices with an Exchange Server access license, also because this allows for customized licensing.
General information about licensing Exchange Server 2019 with CALs
For the Standard and Enterprise editions of Exchange Server 2019, Microsoft License Management offers licensing with a server license plus client access licenses; as mentioned, the server license must be supplemented with endpoint (or user) licenses to allow employees to access email, etc. CALs included in the server license are for IT administrators only and therefore cannot be used for typical services. Only a client access license such as the Device CAL therefore gives an employee the rights to use the Exchange Server functions on a Windows-enabled end device. The CAL does not include any additional software other than access rights to the Exchange Server 2019 client/server environment.
What are the benefits of Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019 Standard- and Enterprise edition?
CAL-based licensing for the Standard and Enterprise editions of Exchange Server 2019 enables flexible, on-demand management of access rights for the computers used for this purpose. The Microsoft licensing model offers a total of two types of CALs for Exchange Server 2019:
- Device CAL for Exchange Server 2019: applies to one dedicated end device (PC, laptop, tablet, phone) server access rights at a time
- User CAL for Exchange Server 2019: applies to one dedicated user at a time
Different usage options for Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019 Standard and Enterprise
The Standard and Enterprise editions for Exchange Server 2019 differ primarily in terms of the scalability of mailbox requests. However, it is generally possible to use the functionality of the Enterprise edition with a Device CAL authorized for the Standard edition - however, only a correspondingly smaller number of mailbox databases is then available, as well as only the limited Standard functionality. In contrast, Device CALs for the Enterprise Edition have an extended range of functions.
Please note version compatibility for Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019!
A Device CAL for the Exchange Server 2019 editions not only equips the respective end device with the access rights for this version, it also authorizes access to older Exchange versions such as 2016 (downgrade). This gives the Device CAL 2019 an advantage over older Device CAL versions that apply to the corresponding previous version of Exchange Server, but which cannot be used to access the Exchange Server 2019 version (upgrade).
While there are currently no more recent Device CALs for Exchange Server than the 2019 version, it is always a good idea to check for compatibility between the server license and the client access license when purchasing, as well as the edition-specific functionality included.
What should be considered when licensing Exchange Server 2019 with a used Device CAL?
As mentioned earlier, a Device CAL equips a single endpoint (device) with access rights to Exchange Server 2019. Once the registration of the computer has been completed, the Device CAL cannot be transferred to another end device. It is also not possible to change the CAL type and use a Device CAL as a User CAL.
These restrictions in Microsoft license management are intended to prevent any improper access to Exchange Server 2019 services. In this way, they provide greater security for a company and its communications, as this prevents third-party or unlicensed endpoints from accessing emails and other server data.
What are the differences between Device CALs and User CALs for Exchange Server 2019?
Basically, the Device CAL for Exchange Server 2019 does not differ from the User CAL in terms of functionality. The difference is in the benefits that the respective type of access to the Exchange Server has. In addition, there is the number as well as the equipment of the workstations in a company as well as the workflow in which users access the Exchange Server: In some SMEs, for example, different employees share a single end device in order to take turns accessing the Exchange Server and calling e-mails, etc., while in other companies users access it for this purpose via completely different end devices.
A device that is authorized to access Windows with a Device CAL can be considered to be used by any employee who has permission to use Exchange services. If the licensed end device is mobile, e.g. a laptop or tablet, the respective user can also access the Exchange server locally independently - e.g. on the road or at homeOffice - via Internet access. The Device CAL thus also offers mobile usage options.
Conclusion on Device CALs
Which type of client access licenses for Exchange Server 2019 offers more advantages for use in a company can therefore differ from case to case. In addition to the number of employees using Exchange Server for communication, the predominant type of access via existing endpoints should also be considered in relation to this: If several employees regularly share a certain end device - whether mobile or stand-alone - and use it alternately to access the Exchange Server, e.g. in shift work, Device CAL offers more advantages.
Whether licensing with Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019 is more favorable than that of User CALs, because fewer licenses are then required, therefore results from the typical company workflow. Therefore, its knowledge should be the basis for choosing CAL when buying used client access licenses for Exchange Server 2019.

Info about the origin of Device CALs for Exchange Server 2019 as used software from Wiresoft

Individual Device access licenses or the complete Device volume license were resold by the latter to Wiresoft and the volume licenses were dissolved into individual licenses. These Device CALs are thus labeled as used software. However, despite the new labeling as used licenses, they can be used like a new license to access Exchange Server 2019, as they do not differ from them in terms of restrictions on functionality or duration of use.
