Kannel functions as an SMS (Short Message Service) gateway and as a WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) gateway. The functions are independent, and can be used separately or both at once. When used as an SMS gateway, Kannel can receive messages from one or more SMS centers and convert them into HTTP requests. It also has an HTTP interface for sending messages back to the SMS centers, and it can send text responses directly from a configuration file. Kannel supports the following SMS center protocols:
- CIMD 1.3 and CIMD 2.0 over IP
- SMPP 3.3 over IP
- UCP/EMI 2.0 over IP and serial
- SEMA SMS2000 OIS 4.0 and 5.0 over Radiopad and X.25
Kannel can also exchange messages with a mobile phone or GSM modem, in effect using it as an SMS center. When used as a WAP gateway, Kannel functions as described in the http://www.wapforum.org (WAP Forum) specifications, except that not all mandatory features of the WAP 1.1 conformance release have been implemented yet. Currently it supports:
- WSP: connection oriented and connectionless modes.
- WTP: class 0 and 2.
- WDP: UDP bearer (GSM datacalls and GPRS).
- WML and WMLScript compilers.
