Just to throw it out there, if you are running Cat5 from all the random points of interest to a central switch (with no intermediaryswitches/hubs), a PortMaster with a hand full of RJ-45 adapters on either end might suffice...

I understand this may be an application where the need to be on accessible local nets with routers/switches between points of interest, but I just wanted to mention that you can run RS-232 signals quite far over Cat5 wiring...
