Sharepoint Enterprise CAL:
For On-Premises, intranet sites are licensed using a Server/CAL (Client Access License) model. SharePoint Server 2013 is required for each running instance of the software, and CALs are required for each person (User CAL) or device (Device CAL) accessing a SharePoint Server.
The Sharepoint Enterprise CAL delivers the full capabilities of SharePoint:
-Sites: A Single Infrastructure for All Your Business Web Sites
-Communities: An Integrated Collaboration Platform
-Content: ECM for the Masses
-Search: Relevance, Refinement, and People; includes FAST Enterprise Search
-Business Solutions (includes Access Services and InfoPath Services)
-Business Intelligence for Everyone (includes Power View, PerformancePoint Services, Excel Services, and Visio Services)
-SharePoint Enterprise CAL is additive: To access the Enterprise edition features of SharePoint, a person/device must have both the SharePoint Standard CAL and the SharePoint Enterprise CAL.
-In SharePoint 2013, for Extranet and Internet sites scenarios, no CALs are required for External Users. External users means users that are not either your or your affiliates’ employees, or your or your affiliates’ onsite contractors or onsite agents.
