Strange CAT5 cabling
Posted on 2014-01-29
I saw this strange issue where a number of cables had been made and the wiring is unlike I have ever seen in all my time.
It is supposed to be a straight through cable and is seemingly working on server - switch communications. However, the green and blue pairs are switched.
It looks like this.
Now I know END A is your standard 568-B standard. But I have never seen END B before. It certainly isn't 568-A.
