Client Access Licenses
BlackBerry client access licenses (CALs) are a seat or license that gives a BlackBerry device end user the right to access the services offered from the organizations BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The server client access license is based on a per seat licensing (also called per user or per device) or per server licensing.
BlackBerry client access licenses can be purchased in 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 server client access license key denominations. Upgrade license keys to take older BES servers to full Enterprise editions are also available.
Client Access License keys can be added from earlier versions of your BES to your current version of your BES without upgrading them. They are upwardly compatible from version 3.5 to the current version.
Client Access License keys can be upgrade at no cost from the older BES v5.0.4 to the new BES 10 platform for BlackBerry 10 and PlayBooks. You can do that here: http://www.blackberry.com/licensetradeup
It is a good idea to have a few extra client access licenses available above and beyond your current BlackBerry count. This way you can add a new user without the delay of ordering CALs. If you do require addition CALs, you can order them at a discount from us directly and get them within hours. Go to http://www.zezel.com/Departments/server-client-access-license.aspx
