Licensing cost of MS Direct Access & MS Always-On VPN

How is the licensing cost charged for deploying MS Always-On VPN
and MS Direct Access?

Need to present a budget for it for the 250+ laptops (about half on
Win10+8 and the other half on Win 7).

We have Win 2012 R2 servers & our AD is running one.

So if the laptops are running Win 10 Pro or Win 8 Pro, they are not on
Windows Enterprise and thus we have to upgrade them to Win 10 or
8 Enterprise and roughly what's the cost like for upgrading?

If we don't upgrade (to save us the labour of upgrading), will it work
technically if we just pay the difference in the licence cost?
