The short answer is: No.

To send SMS'es you must have access to an SMS gateway. Only when you know which gateway to use you can begin to worry about how to communicate with it.

My guess (but I have no experience) is that such gateway, either provides a software API for connecting to it or uses the HTTP protocol (or both).

Given the simplicity of SMS'es (a telephone number and max 160 characters) I would imagine that sending an SMS is simple. Besides this I imagine that you must perform some kind of logon to the gateway (so that it can set the sender telephone number, and charge the SMS fees).
