This is a tough question.  You are going to get a lot of personal choice.  Here is my input.  I work for a networking company.  We have tried to partner ourself with the best at what they do.  If you want VoIP phones, I would recommend Avaya, they have over 100 years of telecommunication experience.  If you want IP cameras, your best choice would be Axis Communication.  They are more expensive then others, but the quality is the best.  If you want someone at the top of data movement, the most popular answer you are going to get is Cisco.  But again, there are a lot of quality vendors, Adtran and Juniper make good switches, all of those vendors are expensive.  Your title says best value.  I would have to say that the Netgear Prosafe switches are the best value.  You can get a 24 port, layer 3 POE switch that is stackable for around $1000, and they have a lifetime warranty.  Hope this helps.
