The company currently providing our techs is suggesting we go with individual CAL's in order to get our students' BYOD iPads onto our wireless network @ $25 per license/student.
I'm pretty green when it comes to this stuff but my research tells me that a CAL is just a Microsoft license allowing the devices to use our current servers running Windows. (My research also tells me that Microsoft have just increased the cost of these CAL's!!!) However, we are providing a Mac server as part of this deployment so doesn't this mean we would be bypassing Microsoft anyway? It's very pricey for something that doesn't appear to give us any management over the devices anyway. Am I missing something? Does anyone have any experience with this?
Many thanks, Lisa.
