Orbi Mesh System Compatibility with Arris

I am looking at getting an Orbi system for my house. I have an Arris TG1672-NA WifI modem/router currently. The TG1672 combines two analog voice lines, a 4-port Gigabit Router, and 802.11n wireless access point. Are these Orbi systems listed below compatible to my device? 

 

Orbi AC2200, RBK20W

Orbi AC3000, RBK50

Orbi AC2200, RBK23

Orbi AX4200, RBK752

 

I appreciate any and all recommendations to include on defining the function (modem or router) for each system.

Re: Orbi Mesh System Compatibility with Arris

They all should be compatible. 

To avoid a double nat, you could put the arris in bridge mode.

or the orbi setups in access point mode.

or you could put the orbi's ip address in the arris's dmz. (a little more challenging)
