The correct name for this is: SMS 2003 device CML

Every client in your environment will need this type of license.  The SMS 2003 CML is required for each device running the SMS client components that are managed by SMS. A device can be a single server, single personal computer, workstation, terminal, handheld computer, pager, telephone, personal digital assistant, or other electronic device. In retail channels, single SMS 2003 device CMLs are not available or priced individually
