Eagle Broadband Inc. announced that it has received an initial purchase order from Euro-GSM for its “new proprietary low-Earth-orbit, satellite-based communications system.” According to company officials this system offers, for the first time, true “total” global communications coverage for a large number of users from non-line-of-sight environments.

Belgium-based Euro-GSM, Eagle’s exclusive marketing partner for the new system – dubbed Orb’ Phone Exchange – placed the initial purchase order as part of its annual commitment to maintain marketing exclusivity. Delivery is scheduled for early 2003.
