We are preparing an SMDS service offering on the AcNet Network. We have
been unable to locate the party responsable for the assignment of the
"Network" portion of our SMDS addressing schema.
Does anyone out there know where one applies for such an identifier
(E.164) for a new SMDS Network?
Thanks for any advice one might offer.

Generally, you get it from your SMDS network provider.
I am under the impression that the [c/e]1-xxx-xxx-xxxx[-ffff] SMDS E.164
IDs are unique throughout the IXCs and Bells, but I could be wrong.
If you're building a private SMDS net, there may be some SMDS E.164
namespace delegation authority.
Check with Bellcore? I'm sure they have a white paper somewhere that
describes the name space allocation for SMDS.
