DataPower Technology Inc. has launched what it calls an application-oriented router that blends the functionality of an application router, extensible markup language (XML) security gateway and integration appliance.

The five-year-old company has been developing XML-aware networking systems and ASICs, and tapped its XML experience to create the X150 platform, a box that brings application-oriented capabilities to networks, the company said.

The X150 translates between disparate data formats. A transformation engine converts binary or flat text to XML, XML to binary or flat text, binary to binary and XML to XML, said Eugene Kuznetsov, CTO at Data-Power. "The X150 talks using legacy mainframe protocols. This capability helps bridge non-XML to XML servers," Kuznetsov said. It provides transaction routing, a map repository, lightweight message brokering and support for multiple transport protocols.

The X150 is already available, priced between $50,000 and $75,000, depending on options and quantities.
