device cals vs user cals

I am confused...    If we deploy a new Server 2012 in our organization, do I want User CALS or Device CALS

We have 47 employees

We have 47 workstations, 19 network printers,

I assume, I want User Cals.
But those 47 users also access network via RDP sessions.

So, I need user CALS  AND RDP CALS

Thanks

You *probably* want user CALs. Device CALs are more suited to environments where there are workers in multiple shifts where one device CAL would cover several workers.bin very large environments, it isn't uncommon to even see them mixed.

Either way you'll need RDS CALs in addition to windows CALS access an RDS environment. RDS CALs also come in user and device editions.
