ASA 5515-X IPS Edition Question

Is the Cisco ASA 5515-X IPS Edition meant to replace an Internet edge firewall or to be installed before the edge firewall to provide IPS services?

With that device you get the complete functionality of the ASA with the addition of IPS. So if your internet-edge should be build with one firewall, which is quite common in medium-sized business, then it will replace the old firewall.

But if your security-team wants to keep the old firewall, you can disable all firewalling on the IPS-Edition ASA and use it as a pure IPS-device behind your existing edge-firewall. Both scenarios are possible.
