There are two ways to acquire MultiPoint Server 2012:
- Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 Academic can be acquired through the Microsoft Academic Volume Licensing program.
- Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 can be acquired pre-installed from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
In addition to the server licence, MultiPoint Client Access Licences (CALs) are required. Both device and user variants of the Windows Multipoint Server CAL are available to allow customers to optimise their CAL purchase decisions based on their individual needs. However, two CALs will be required for connection to Windows MultiPoint Server, a Windows Server CAL, and a MultiPoint Server CAL.
