One of the first things I did when I moved to a bigger house was run a single network cable around the outside of the house to be able to install a point-to-point radio and cameras. I got the biggest plastic enclosure I could find from home depot and mounted it near an outdoor power outlet. Inside, I put a power squid and an 8-port PoE switch. I'm already outgrowing that switch.

I'm sure it is very nice having one centralized location that all network cables run back to, but one of the biggest benefits of IP networking in my opinion is being able to utilize one cable for many different data feeds.
