Remote Desktop Services (RDS) for Windows Server 2022 enables the associated applications to be made available to users centrally. In order for users to be able to access these remotely with a specific Windows-enabled end device, a Client Access License (Device CAL) is required for this device, which only entitles the user to connect to Windows Server 2022 as part of a remote desktop session . Any employee who has access rights for the end device in question equipped with an RDS Device CAL can then access the Windows Server, e.g. for support, to access another computer or to use a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

The latest Device CAL for the Remote Desktop Services to Windows Server 2022
Remote Desktop Services (RDS) for Windows Server 2022 enables the associated applications to be made available centrally to users. In order for User to be able to use these remotely with a specific Windows-enabled end device, a Client Access license (Device CAL) is required for this end device, which only authorizes connection to the Windows Server 2022 as part of a Remote-Desktop session. Any employee who has access rights for the relevant end device equipped with an RDS Device CAL can then access the Windows Server , e.g. for support, to access another computer or to use a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
At Wiresoft you can already find RDS Device CALs for the Windows Server 2022 as inexpensive used software. Benefit also from the free choice of any number of RDS Device CALs for your customized licensing.
What are the advantages of an RDS Device CAL for Windows Server 2022?
In Windows Server 2022, the Remote Desktop Services represents a dedicated server role that controls remote access to various Windows applications, which are available via a corresponding Windows Server that serves as host. Only users who have a corresponding client access license - e.g. for a terminal device - can therefore use the Windows Server and the Services available via it with the PC, laptop, etc. equipped with it locally independently (remotely) via an Internet connection.
Windows Server 2022 also offers many new Remote Desktop Sessions also many new features as well as optimizations in the areas of network security, container creation with Windows and Kubernetes, and migration of data and servers, storage and virtualization. Among other things, the latest version of Transport Layer Security, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Storage Spaces Direct (SSD) as well as Storage Replica, Virtual OSE, Hyper-V and Shielded Virtual Machines (SVM) are available to create and manage highly secure virtualization infrastructures.
Windows Server 2022 also supports nested virtualization using AMD processors, new versions of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), RACK (Recent ACKnowledgment), and RSC (Receive Segment Coalescing), and uses Microsoft Edge as the browser by default.
Advantages of RDS CALs for Admins
Administrators also have many practical advantages with an RDS Device CAL for Windows Server 2022, because these significantly reduce the effort required to manage the end devices in a company and thus make deployment, for example, much more efficient. Software and updates can be deployed centrally in a corporate environment and no longer have to be installed individually on each end device. Applications are now only provided on the Server or updated via it.
Also the single access of users, who use a RDS Device CAL , can be regulated over it by an Admin individually, because the Remote Desktop Services permit also a different right assignment Pro registered coworker. Thus the entire expenditure for the supply and/or maintenance of workplaces is thereby substantially reduced.
Typical advantages of the Remote Desktop Services Device CAL for User
Above all, however, it is the employees in a company who derive a wide range of benefits from using an RDS Device CAL for Windows Server 2022. They thus benefit from a standardized Windows working environment, regardless of the location of the registered end device with which they access it.
For this purpose, older end devices can also be used that have weaker performance or hardware that is usually not sufficient for the hardware requirements of Windows Server 2022. This is because as soon as the licensed PC accesses a specific application via the host using the Device CAL as part of a remote desktop session, the application is executed only on the Server. This is done independently of other client connections and the respective employee only sees his own session. With a Device CAL for the Remote Desktop Services of Windows Server 2022, the costs of providing new hardware can therefore be reduced or avoided; it is also possible to use thin clients.
The Microsoft license management for Remote Desktop Service CALs
As a general rule for any Microsoft Server software, its implementation is always separate from its actual use. Any access to the Windows Server , whether direct or Remote, always requires a corresponding client access license (CAL). The access rights for the use of Windows Server programs are regulated by Microsoft via its own license management, which is based on the Client Access Licenses - CALs.
This means, for example, that Device CALs for the Remote Desktop Services ensure that access to the Windows Server is only possible for an end device authorized to use it. According to Microsoft, this also ensures the security of the data and Services provided by a Server, since unregistered end devices, i.e. without the appropriate access license, are denied access to the Services or data available via it.
Microsoft offers two different types of Remote Desktop Services CALs from Windows Server 2022:
- Device CAL for RDS, with which a dedicated end device (PC, Laptop, Table, Mobile Phone) receives access rights
- User CAL for RDS, with which a dedicated user is given access rights
A CAL for the Remote Desktop Services from Windows Server 2022 is made up of various components which, taken together, enable a terminal device or a User to use the Windows Server Services in the first place:
- The actual remote desktop licensing regulates the use of the respective CAL and makes it available to a device or User.
- The remote desktop session host manages all desktops or programs made available during a Remote session.
- The remote desktop connection broker manages all Remote connections and restores them if a session is terminated.
- The Remote Desktop Gateway controls access via a terminal to a Windows-Desktop on a public network.
- Web Access for Remote Desktop Services provides access for specific users or groups via a web portal.
As indicated earlier, the Device CAL governs for Remote Desktop Services the access rights for a specific end device registered via it. Here, during licensing, the first time a connection is established between the end device and the client computer, the former is granted a temporary access license. When the latter connects to the host-Server for the second time as part of a Remote-Desktop session, the permanent Device RDS-CAL is issued.
What are the special advantages of RDS Device CALs?
The RDS Device CAL then manages the appropriate access rights to the Windows Server or host for each remote desktop session. Every employee who is allowed or able to use this end device - no matter if PC, laptop, tablet etc. - can then make use of the Remote Desktop Services , especially locally independent of the Server location. The RDS Device CAL is therefore of greater advantage if several employees share a terminal device.
Version compatibility for RDS Device CALs important for Windows Server
When licensing an RDS Device CAL , care must be taken to ensure that the version of the client access license is always compatible with the current version of Windows Server . Downgrading is also possible, but not upgrading: because the RDS Device CAL 2022 includes access rights for the Windows Server 2022 as well as those for older server versions such as 2019, but not to future higher server versions. Therefore, a previous version of RDS Device CAL cannot be used for Remote connections with Windows Server 2022.
More info about RDS Device CALs for Windows Server 2022

- Each RDS Device CAL is tracked by the respective licenseServer regardless of its registration in the Active Directory
- A temporarily available RDS Device CAL is valid between 52 and 89 days
- The number of pre-defined Device CALs cannot be exceeded
Conclusion about RDS Device CALs
Which type of Remote Desktop Services CAL for Windows Server 2022 offers the greater advantage in a company therefore depends on the individual case or the size of a company. Especially if several employees use an end device alternately, e.g. in shift work, then the RDS Device CAL offers more usage options here and you therefore need fewer client access licenses.
Because it is not possible to subsequently change an RDS Device CAL to an User CAL and vice versa, the decision for one type of client access licensing must be made at the time of purchase. Therefore, ask a Wiresoft representative about the best licensing for you with Remote Desktop Services CALs .
