In a multi-year agreement, Intelsat will provide the integrated, end-to-end network connectivity, while Orbit Data Systems will be responsible for sales, marketing and retail distribution of the service in the Middle East region. In preparation for service launch, the Intelsat-provided gateway required for ODSL's service has been installed in Perth, Australia, and is operating a beta service.

The service is expected to be launched later this year.
