I have a Lightwave Console Server and Cisco devices connected with this part number cable.  It is not a cross over or straight through cable according to my cable meter (Patch-Check 1529) the pinouts are:
A B
1-7
2-4
3-3
4-5
5-nc (no connection?) Note: 6 on the B side is also nc
6-2
7-1
8-8

This cable only works in one direction - A goes to the Cisco device - B goes to the Lightwave

What I'm asking is, what is the purpose of the cable I have.  Is this a Cisco cable that I can only get from them?
Yep, you could always custom make the cable.  But it is considered a special cable distrubed by cisco.
In my 506E it is a yellow cable that I use to connect to my DSL modem. Not sure why it is special, but that is it's function and purpose.

to get really technical...

The 72-1482-01 is a 568B  standard

which is the above diagram

A typical network cable follows 568A

You can use either or...

568A+568B=crossover...
