The Micro Mapper might do what you need to identify and then label the wires.

if it's a direct connection, use the oldest trick in the book.
Disconnect the cable and see which port changed status.
The only way to do this "Smartly" is LLDP but then you need the cable to be connected to LLDP capable  devices on both ends,
