Kannel - The SMS gateway

Kannel is a compact and very powerful open source WAP and SMS gateway, used widely across the globe both for serving millions of short messages (SMS) and pushing WAP service indications. Kannel is used as the sms gateway in the SAHANA 0.5 alpha release's messaging module. It uses either GSM/GPRS modems or phones as virtual SMSCs to send and receive sms from/to the SAHANA system. Further information on Kannel is available here.
