Kannel is an WAP and SMS gateway. WAP is short for Wireless
Application Protocol, and is used to implement hypertext based services
on mobile phones. SMS is short for Short Message Service, and is used
to send and recive short (up to 160 characters) text messages with
mobile phones. SMS can also be used to implement simple text based
services on mobile phones.
Kannel consists of three programs, usually run as daemons: bearerbox,
wapbox, and smsbox. They implement the connection to the phone (SMS or
UDP), the WAP protocol stack, and the SMS based services, respectively.
