For my graduating-paper I'm setting up an infrastructure (on paper). I've been reading up on Kerio products (I must say I'm really impressed by all producest and the functionality they offer) and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go for Kerio Connect for my mail alternative and Kerio operator for VoIP funcionality.
Now I don't have any actual experience with VoIP so I was wondering how this would work out in a network scheme.
I got a server room attached to a switch. When installing a Kerio Operator. Do you just plug it in to the switch in the server room and configure? Or do you need to keep in mind other things? For example other connections with the Operator machine?
As a final part of my question, which will probably be the go/no-go for these products. Are Kerio solutions viable for a (fictional) company of 2000-2500 employees?
Any input would be appreciated.

Being a VoIP PBX, Kerio Operator is OK with just the network connection. In addition to VoIP (SIP), you can also use E1/T1 or EuroISDN connections.
2000-2500 is outside Kerio's focus on SMB customers. When it comes to Operator, the main issue is not the number of users but the number of concurrent calls. Operator is based on Asterisk and you should be able to find benchmarks for Asterisk, for various processors and codecs.
