OLP = Open License Program

Microsoft Open License is a Volume Licensing program for small to
midsize organizations that have fewer than 250 desktop PCs. The program
provides a simple, flexible, and cost-effective way to buy the latest
Microsoft technology to meet your organization's needs and procurement


NL = No Level

Some Microsoft Volume License programs have "Levels", which are
basically bulk discounts. Some other companies call these "price bands".
Depending on the number of licenses purchased at once, discounts get
applied. If you don't purchase enough for a discount, this is called No
Level or NL.

For example:

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Standard CAL has two discount Levels:

No Level - for 1 to 49 users

Level C - for 50+ users

	If one were to say they had a license for:

"Windows Svr Std 2003 R2 Localized OLP NL authorization"

	What does "Localized OLP NL authorization" mean?
