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.
