Yes, that seems to be a popular package.

Yes, it has the AT command set, and MultiTech also sells a GSM modem
(MTCBA-G) that is supported by smstools3, but a fairly casual reading
of the reference manuals for both show quite a bit of diversity in the
command set between the CDMA and GSM modems.
Phil> Alternatively, have you considered a Nokia handset with Gnokii ?
No, not really. I was thinking that a "modem" would be a little more
robust and easier to deal with in the rack than a handset would be. If
I'm given a choice, I think I'd stay away from a handset, but I may
not have a choice. :)
