Cable pinouts

EIA/TIA cabling specifications define two standards: 568A and 568B for cable pinouts.
Standard 568A—Pin 1: white/green stripe, pin 2: green solid, pin 3: white/orange stripe, pin 4:
blue solid, pin 5: white/blue stripe, pin 6: orange solid, pin 7: white/brown stripe, pin 8: brown
solid.
Standard 568B—Pin 1: white/orange stripe, pin 2: orange solid, pin 3: white/green stripe, pin 4:
blue solid, pin 5: white/blue stripe, pin 6: green solid, pin 7: white/brown stripe, pin 8: brown
solid.

Cable type

Based on performance
Ethernet cables can be classified into category 3, category 4, category 5, category 5e, category 6,
category 6A, and category 7 cables based on performance.
