    Unified Messaging requires enterprise CAL licensing and its not scoped to edition.

  • Hi Anees,

    Yes you can, but if you want to use UM feature, you need Enterprise CAL license.

    The only significant difference between the Standard and Enterprise products is the number of mailbox databases each edition allows. The Standard edition allows up to 5 mailbox databases, while the Enterprise edition allows up to 50. (Exchange 2013 RTM CU2 Enterprise Edition, you can have 100 Mounted databases.)

    Server licenses

    With this license type, a license must be assigned for each instance of the server software that is being run. There are two server editions:
    • Standard: designed for the mailbox needs of small to midsize organizations. Also appropriate for non-mailbox roles in a larger Exchange deployment. This edition supports 1 to 5 mailbox databases.
    • Enterprise: designed for larger organizations that may require a greater number of mailbox databases. This edition supports 1 to 100 mailbox databases. (To use 100 mailbox databases you must have installed Exchange Server 2013 RTM Cumulative Update 2. Learn more
