They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that's truly the case, then Chinese networking hardware brand Tenda Technology is trying to flatter a lot of people. Their newest AC15 performance router resembles routers from companies like ASUS and Netgear, but it also has a feature set that is targeted specifically at those companies.
The Tenda AC15 performance router is a dual-band gigabit WiFi router. It'll fully support 1300Mbps 802.11ac at 5GHz and 600Mbps 802.11n at 2.4 GHz concurrently. Using Beamforming+, the Tenda router also says it can provide a stable wireless connection to all your connected devices, including IoT devices.
In addition to the 4 Gigabit wired network connections, the AC15 also has a USB 3.0 port on the back. This allows you to share either a USB drive or printer over your network. The unit doesn't come with any cloud-based connectivity though.
The Tenda AC15 is available now from at least one retailer. For more info check out the press release below.

Beamforming+ Enhances WiFi Range and Stability
Beamforming+ technology locks and focuses the signal where it is needed most. The router knows the spatial location of each device and its maximum connection speed. It shapes and optimizes the signal for each connected device, extending range and reducing dead spots in the coverage. This also prevents unnecessary interference from other devices and enhances the signal for everyone. The high-powered amplifiers and three external antennas also strengthen WiFi range and signal. These features combine for a steadier connection and better WiFi throughput.
USB 3.0 Port for Personal Secure Cloud and Printer Sharing
The AC15 acts as a personal cloud via its USB 3.0 port for fast, secure access to external hard drives, allowing users to share and upload large files to a decentralized location. Its built-in print server makes it easy to access your printer from anywhere.
