1. What are the advantages of using SMPP over a plain GSM modem? Does SMPP makes use of GSM modem?

2. What are the hardware requirements if I want to use SMPP?

3. If I have two GSM modems installed, how do I designate that one SMS will be sent using modem A and the other SMS will be sent using modem B?

Thank you very much.

2.) There is not really a hardware requirement. There is a service provider requirement, as you need to be connecting to an SMS service provider using the SMPP protocol.

3.) There's a good description here:
