How do you post SMS messages on a website?

I am developing a website with Ruby that will integrate SMS messaging.
Let’s say the site is called http://www.example.com for clarity sake.
The primary function of example.com will be accepting incoming sms
messages and then posting these messages to a page on the site. So,
let’s say Jane Doe texts, “This is cool”, to some number, ultimately
“This is cool” will post to a page on www.example.com. The only
stipulation that example.com needs is that it will have to handle a
large amount of sms messages

Doing some research over the last few days it seems like only viable way
to pull this off is by accessing a SMS gateway. I just want to make
sure that accessing a SMS gateway is the best alternative before
starting a project that will take awhile to complete.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Ryan

What country are you in, and what is the scope (e.g. local, regional,
national, international, or global) of the SMS messages you want to be
able to receive? A large amount of messages is still a vague term. Up
to about a thousand messages a day (mobile originated, with no
response in return) may still be doable with a GSM modem coupled to
Kannel (http://www.kannel.org). For traffic volumes larger than this,
or if you want to send SMS messages out, either in response or as a
mobile terminated service (e.g. to send updates to certain users), or
if you want your service to be international or global in scope you
will need a real SMS gateway.
