Here's a good article that may help you understand how Kannel sends SMS:

Scroll down to the "Setting up the Kannel Server" portion for the good stuff.

Hi Guys,

Ok, so the Kannel GW has the Bearerbox which will take the configuration for your SMPP connection to the Operator SMSC
and the SMSbox which takes the http service to send the SMS through the bearerbox, I have attached example configs below...

bearer box config or similar for your setup:

group = smsc
smsc = smpp
host = 10.x.y.z
receive-port = 8000
smsc-username = "sms"
smsc-password = password
system-type = systemtype
address-range = ""
no-sender = true
no-coding = true


(Example SMSbox Config )
group = smsbox
bearerbox-host = 10.X.Y.Z  (IP of your Kannel GW )
sendsms-port = 10503
sendsms-chars = "0123456789 +-"
log-file = "/logs/sms_smsbox.log"
log-level = 5
immediate-sendsms-reply = true

# Default
group = sms-service
keyword = default
send-sender = false
allowed-receiver-prefix-regex=^(50001|50002|55555|50004|50103|50909|51188|51511|53530|53534|)$  (SHORTCODES YOU WILL USE IN HERE)
url = "http://10.X.Y.Z/cgi-bin/as_capture.pl?text=%a&sender=%p&service=%P"   (IP is Host address of KGW )
max-messages = 0

group = sms-service
keyword=default
allowed-receiver-prefix-regex=^(50000|50003|50023|50102|50046|50104|50009|50008)$
send-sender = true


group = sms-service
keyword=default
allowed-receiver-prefix-regex=^(50000|50003|50023|50102|50046|50104|50009|50008)$
send-sender = true
post-xml=http://10.x.y.z:7011/SMSFacadeProxy



Now you will also need an SMPP ESME listening on the Messaging gateway that enters the Mobile operator.  Usually, an operator will have
a mesaging application router (MAR) or equivelant which will fork your incoming connection to each of their SMSC's.  An operator may have anywhere from
2 to 10 SMSC's in their network.  They will agree config with you (smsc-username = "sms" / smsc-password = password / system-type = systemtype )
see bearer box config above.  Usually this is a VPN they setup between you and them.  


Hope this helps or puts you on the right track

Regards

host = 10.x.y.z  in the BB config above is usually a load balancer IP in the operator
