  • as you said it is small Deployment you can go with Lync Standard Edition itself.

  • Agree with Raju_raju and Baasky that from a server licensing perspective you could use Lync 2010 Standard edition, however if you want conferencing features from a Client Access License (CAL) perspective, you are going to want Enterprise CAL or Plus CAL on top of your Standard CAL, if you're not doing Enterprise voice than Std+Ent CAL would be sufficient for properly licensing conferencing features. 

    You can read more here on the features with each license type. http://blogs.technet.com/b/ucedsg/archive/2010/10/13/lync-2010-licensing.aspx

    Note that features aren't explicitly disabled if you're not licensed properly, however for compliance you should have the correct CALs for the purpose you intend.

  • Hi Amir,

    You could choose Lync Server 2013 Standard edition instead of Lync 2010 version; 

    Also, since third party / outside users are to be involved in video conferencing then you need Edge Servers also deployed in your Org.

    Refer the link below for more on planning for Conferencing:
