SPID

Acronym for Service Profile Identifier, a number that identifies a specific ISDN line. When you obtain ISDN service, your telephone company assigns a SPID to your line. Part of the initialization procedure is to configure your ISDN terminal adapter to use this SPID.

Most telephone companies in the U.S. use the Generic SPID Format, which is a 14-digit number. The first 10 digits identify the telephone number, called the Directory Number (DN). The remaining four digits identify a particular ISDN device, in the case where multiple devices share the same Directory Number.
