NAT Hardware question

I know this question has been asked before, but would like to get a quick idea of what other schools are using for NATing large user loads.  We will be moving away from public IPs to private IPs this summer and are debating the type of box to use for the actual NATing.  About 10K users and growing..

Our Aruba controllers connect to a Cisco backbone with Sup 2T, ASA 5585, and an ASR-1006.  Trying to decide if we should add this load to the productions boxes (core, firewall, border), or get a separate box to do just NATing for wireless users.

Thanks,

Re: NAT Hardware question

The ASR should be more than capable of providing NAT at the border.

Re: NAT Hardware question

Thanks Tim.

We decided yo use our ASA 5585 for our secured SSID and the ASR at the border for our guest.
