  • If the smart meters are, say, fixed IP or are not getting an IP or DNS from a MS server nor does it require a user account / logon then based on what you say, no cals needed.

    It's the interface that will require a user cal (as mentioned) but so long as the smart meter itself is not accessing the network / shared folder / sql server etc then the meters are not considered as using any MS service.

    An example I can give, I have a client that has a server and is licensed for specific users. However the DHCP and DNS is done off the router, so those that have their smart watches / mobiles etc connected to the wifi don't need a cal as they are not touching any MS service.

    Agreed.  Only devices (or users) that use MS Server resources in some way need CALs.
