"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

2 mil messages a month is a little slower than 1/second around the clock for a month.
You'd need a computer, a GSM modem, and an application to take care of the SMS.

I can't imagine any 'modern' computer being insufficient to handle that load.  (It's only slightly faster than a Smushbox.)

A part of me assumes your message sending requirements wouldn't be smoothly distributed over the day/week/month, so you'd probably want a multi-channel GSM Modem, with the number of lines dependent on exactly how bursty your requirements are.  (And if you were testing/ setting up for a proof of concept, you could just use a Bluetooth connection from the computer to a smartphone for slower throughput.)

And you might have your own software, or be able write to the api.  Alternately, you there are numerous applications available.  (NowSMS, for example... and they have a 'Lite' version with a timed demo version available.)
