Fortigate - Wireguard Support

Hi,
 
I did a less-than-thorough search on the web, but was wondering if Fortinet has plans to integrate Wireguard VPN in their Fortigates?  We've all had some sports with IPSEC tunnels that drop and never come back - might be time to embrace the future. :-) 
 
Thanks!

    Agreed.  The level of consensus among network professionals that Wireguard is becoming *the* VPN protocol of choice is nothing short of breathtaking.   Support for Wireguard is already becoming part of our decision-making process when choosing equipment for a build.
     
    Mikrotik and pfSense are already there, by the way.
     
    Please integrate Wireguard into Fortinet products immediately.

    wireguard is fantastic
     
    Implement it (also in beta ) can provide a big advantage on competitors.
    it is the future: faster , secure , simple...

    AGREED
    Mikrotik, pfsense, openwrt, opnsense already support it


    Additional Request
    1. bigger RAM, as low end model such as 61F will got Conserve Mode when many feature on
    2. USB-C for console port since USB-A cable more expensive than USB-C cable
    PA CP, Cisco has USB-C console port. Why not Forti follow the same trend

    I highly doubt it the big vendors like Cisco, Juniper,etc..( Fortinet included ) will jump to implement wireguard in their routers and firewalls . They have no reason to do it .
    For the moment IPsec is  the de-facto standard and is supported everywhere. It works very well and there are no performance issue , no compatibility  issues when using IKEv2 . Just my 2 cents .
