Thanks for your feedback. I should have clarified that we have three floors and one new Meraki switch. Only on one of the floors do our current Extreme APs actually terminate to the one Extreme management switch. The other two floors APs just connect to the regular floor stack (no Extreme switch). If the Meraki APs are 'cloud managed', I'm not sure why we need just one switch after all. If we only had one floor, then all APs could connect to the single Meraki switch directly. Or perhaps I should have purchased 3, 8 port Meraki switches? It seems I'm missing something here.

Hi, Total noob here, but we purchased a MS120-24P PoE switch and 11 MR36 APs to replace our old WiFi system. Our current APs plug into our floor switches with VLAN tagging, etc. Did we not need this switch if we can use our existing PoE switches with the MR36s? I have 7 days to RMA back to our reseller. EDIT: Thank you all for the replies, very helpful! I 'inherited' this infrastructure and it's in sore need of an upgrade. I'd like to keep our topology consistent so it's good to know that we don't need the MS-120 switch but I can find another purpose for it. I'm budgeting for new floor stack switches next year so perhaps we'll go 100% Meraki and this is a good opportunity to learn the platform. I really like it so far.
