How the SMS system works

After setting up this solution, SMS messages will travel from Lotus Notes to the mobile phones via Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. You can compose a message in Lotus Notes or you can send your received email as an SMS message to even more recipients. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway reads it, processes it and forwards it to the mobile phones of the given recipients. The SMS gateway uses a HTTP request for this process. You can examine this process in Figure 2.
