RBK852 with RBS50?

I currently have an RBK50 system with two satellites. If I bought an RBK852 system, would I be able to use my two current satellites with it? Obviously they wouldn't be able to throw the 802.11ax signal around, but could they be used to just increase the network coverage, WITHOUT dragging my entire network down to 802.11ac speeds?

You can LAN wire connect RBS50s to the RBR850 only. RBS50s are not currently wirelessly backhaul compatible. NG is supposed to make them wirelessly compatible. No time frame though on when that will happen. So you can use RBS50s like wired APs only at time time. 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>XR450 v2.3.2.106(Router Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, RBK853, R7800, R7960P,
EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111
