Fortigate F series Life Cycle

Hi

Fortigate F series is launched last year (2022).

I have a project from today to next 5 years.

Can Fortigate 80F be "live" in the next 5 years?

I need to focus an Branch Office HardWare version that I will sell in the next years to my customer.

 

Any suggestion?

 

Thank you

Jonathan meant "5 year of life after EOO(End of Order) announcement". This means if EOO announcement won't happen for next 4 years, its life would last for 9 years. After the EOO, you can't order any new stuff, not only a new 80F unit but also adding a new UTM/UTP license if it hadn't it before. But of course you can renew support/licenses every year after EOO date if you choose to renew it for 1 year until the EOS(End of Support) date.

to known EOL products, but 80F haven't announciated EOL yet, commonly FGT have at least 5 years of life-cycle.
