Default Ethernet & Fiber Attic To Basement

Hello All!
I am preparing to make some network runs from my attic to my basement on the exterior of my home.
This is only for ethernet (non-POE) and a couple of fiber runs for SFP connectivity (6 cat6/7 and 4 fiber LC to LC,for now). The run will be out the attic, straight down the side of the house to the basement. I tried to use the plumbing chase but its on the opposite end of a finished basement with no easy snaking access .

I plan on using 2.5" Electrical PVC and I found these excellent LB Conduit Bodies that will avoid any sharp turns with the fiber - On Amazon: "Madison Electric Products KBLB251 Smart LB Conduit Body, PVC with Cover and Gasket" (sorry, i'm a noob and cant post links)

How do I anchor the PVC coming out of the LB through the wall of the house in the attic and the basement? Is there a special plate or fitting? I will caulk or duct seal the outside area around the LB once done.

IF I do include a POE run or 2, does that change any of this?

Any other tips are appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
