What does “SEP” means @ Cisco Ephones…


today i asked myself what does SEP followed by the mac address from the Cisco ephone means?

Secure EPhone?
Secure Enhanced Ephone?

… no – searched on the internet and found following anser…

“Cisco acquired SCCP technology when it acquired Selsius Corporation in 1998.[2] As a remnant of the Selsius origin of the current Cisco IP phones, the default device name format for registered Cisco phones with CallManager is SEP — as in Selsius Ethernet Phone — followed by the MAC address. Cisco also has marketed a Skinny-based softphone called Cisco IP Communicator.”
