How SMS termination works in general:
For example a person from the USA wants to write a text message to Ghana. He dials the text of the SMS, dials the number of his friend from Ghana and presses the button “SEND”. After that, his SMS gets to the US mobile operator, whose SIM card it uses. And then the US mobile operator chooses the route by which it will be able to deliver SMS to Ghana.
This route should have stability, high quality, and should also be inexpensive. Therefore, it is easiest to deliver such SMS via the Internet network, with the help of transit operators (carriers). And the carrier must also choose a further route for the delivery of SMS to the final subscriber in Ghana. And the most profitable and high-quality route is the system of fuel and lubricants terminators (consisting of fuel and lubricant gateways and sim-boxes). That is, the transit company sends this SMS to the fuel and lubrication system of the terminator. And further, this GSM terminator’s system delivers this SMS to the final subscriber, and such SMS is very cheap, according to the tariff of the mobile operator for local SMS.
Also By the same principle, mass mailings from various Internet services work: Facebook, Instagram, online banking, online shopping and much more. Every day, these services make millions of mailings to subscribers. Therefore, the more SIM cards have a GSM terminator and the more simultaneous SMS its system can miss, the higher the profit.
