We just got a couple of Catalyst 3850s in the office. From my understanding, it comes with wireless features. We use only VoIP and Mery wireless. We do not use Cusco wireless AP. Will the wireless features interfere with the Meru wireless APs and controller? Is it possible to disable the wireless features on the 3850?

Thanks

With Cisco stuff, unless you specifically configure features they aren't active by default.

Were these pre-configured or new?

Then I suspect unless you specifically set the wireless features up, they aren't enabled and should not impact it acting as you would expect a normal switch to.

If you want to make sure it is off, then run the following command.

3850(config)#no wireless mobility controller

3850(config)#no wireless management interface x

I was trying to access the Cisco website to look for some configuration white paper and I got some broken links. Anyway, how do you check if the wireless is enabled or not? Thx

Go to Privileged Exec mode (enable) and do a show run.

Look for any wireless lines in the config or do a show run | include wireless to get only those lines.

If this is just out of the box, I'm going to say they'll be a very small running config.
