Tenda Announces Open Source Tomato Compatibility for Wireless AC Routers

Tenda Technology Inc.®, a subsidiary of Shenzhen Tenda – an experienced, global brand of wired and wireless networking hardware – today announces open source Tomato firmware compatibility for existing W1800R and W1801R Wi-Fi routers*.

Tomato is the leading Linux-based open source firmware for wireless routers and access points using Broadcom chipsets. It enhances these devices with better performance and new options. Tenda did extensive R&D to make sure Tomato works with these routers. “Networking enthusiasts know the value of Tomato firmware,” states Jeff Wang, director of global marketing for Tenda. “We paired user feedback with rigorous internal tests of Tomato on our routers and concluded it was a valuable asset; our partnership with Broadcom assures us of Tomato’s stability on our hardware.”
