MX to Talari

This is my first exposure to the MX60W, I am trying to do something that I believe is weird, but it is a request from my bosses. 


I am trying to connect an MX60W behind a Talari device, but I only want the MX60W to act as a wireless access point, is that possible? My boss is saying that he wants the security features for our wireless users, but I have never set up an SD-WAN solution behind and SD-WAN solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you want the firewall & content filtering features of the MX60W in front of your wifi, then I'd plug the WAN port of the MX60W into the LAN of your network. So long as the MX60W unit can get to the internet, you'll be able to configure the wireless settings of the MX60W unit.


A possibly better solution would be to simply use the MR access points which have firewall, traffic shaping, access control and more functions built-in. They also allow multiple SSID's on multiple vlans so you can allow some users onto the "business" and others into a "guest." Unless you really need a specific feature of the MX-line to apply only to your wireless units, then the MR is a better bet. The MR is also a much better wireless AP anyways.
