Want to replace currently running Cisco Air CAP AP's using WLC with Meraki MR wireless.
We have Cisco ASA ,Core and access switch's in the environment. Is it possible to just replace the AIR CAP AP's with Meraki MR AP's and allow the IP address and ports as per the Meraki guidelines on the Cisco ASA and communication with get established between MR AP's to the Meraki dashboard and after that we can monitor and configure Merika MR AP.
Or we need to replace the Cisco ASA firewall with MX to get the communication with Meraki dashboard and Cisco Switch's with the Meraki MR.
As @CptnCrnch and @UCcert said, this should all work fine. I’ve had a good number of customers who run just MRs with Cisco Catalyst switches, and various firewall vendors.
The main thing I’ve found that you can’t do with a MR alone is something akin to a guest anchor. You can configure a guest VLAN easily and use that, but if you’re looking for something like a Cisco guest anchor setup where traffic is tunnelled to a DMZ then you’ll need an MX (in the DMZ) to achieve this.
Personal opinion is that in most cases tunnelling guest traffic is overkill and not required, so you don’t need the MX. But I have had customers who require that extra level of separation between their corporate and guest networks.
