Office 2010 Standard Vol License

I configured my Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 R2 and setup 30 terminal server licenses per device. I am planning to install office 2010 Standard Volume license but only 15 licenses.  Just wondering if this office license will be assigned per device or just a concurrent user that are currently connected?

I have 10 remote users that constantly connected remotely. I'm just really confused how this will work.

30 Terminal Licenses per device
15 Office 2010 Standard volume licenses

Do I have to match the office licenses?

Thank you,

Suggest you verify your licensing needs as per leew's comment.
You need a RDS CAL and an Office License for each user you have the permission to access the servers.

If you have 50 users in your organisation and all 50 are allowed to access the Service, then you need 50 x RDS CAL and 50 x Office license

If only 30 of the 50 can connect at any one time, then you still need 50 licenses.

There is no concept of concurrency, you must license all users and device that have the ABILITY to connect

Hope this helps
