SQL server licencing for PABX system RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All. I'm looking for some guidance on how to correctly licence a SQL server for use as part of a PABX system. The PABX system supports 14 end users with a similar number of devices. As such, can I licence this server on a CAL basis for either 14 users or 14-odd devices or do I need to licence per core?

    Basically, are the devices in this instance the 14 configured phones or do I need to count every person who phones in as a device or user as well?
