Enterprise CAL

For some server–based products licensed with two or more CAL (Client Access License) types, Enterprise CAL is the name given to the additive CAL that covers access to advanced server functions and is optional. Occasionally, the term “ECAL” is used as shorthand.

The following current server products are licensed with an Enterprise CAL: Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, and SharePoint Server.
