A Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Standard Client Access License (CAL) user tries to use the basic call control functionality by using a Lync certified USB audio device, such as a headset or a speakerphone. In this situation, the user cannot use the following functionalities:

  • Answer and end calls.

  • Hold and resume calls.
