I have some cat5e cables that are wired and punched down to a patch panel that are wired as 568A (from the computers to the patch panel in my rack.
I wanted to buy some patch panel cat5e 1 foot cables, to connect the patch panel to my switch, is there a problem if the 1 foot patch cables use the 568B standard? Will it still work ok, or will I have problems?
Do I have to use a supplier that specifics that the cables are 568A?
In my studies from years ago, as long as both ends of one cable is the same, I thought that is all that matters, but wanted to double check before I purchase like 25 cables.
