Kannel consists of three programs called boxes: the bearer box is the interface towards the phones. It accepts WAP and SMS messages from the phones and sends them to the other boxes. The SMS box handles SMS gateway functionality, and the WAP box handles WAP gateway functionality. There can be several SMS boxes and several WAP boxes running and they don't have to run on the same host. This makes it possible to handle much larger loads.

bearerbox and smsbox.

The bearerbox is the program that links the client's interface to either the smsbox or wapbox. Since the client is sending an sms, the bearerbox would send the request to the smsbox.
