A Patch Cord And Ethernet Wall Jack Wiring. A patch panel with eight ports should suffice for most home networks but its easy to expand when you need more capacity. Yet patch cables are often used in offices yet.
Youll simply need to repeat the sequence multiple times for your various ports. Making an Ethernet patch cable is easier than most people think and I carry one with me all the time so you know it will be useful. Strip about one inch of the outer jacket off the cable and push the wires into the keystone jack to match the color code marked on it T568A or T568B standards.
Odd numbered pins are always striped even numbered pins are always solid colored.
The patch cable usually has RJ45 plugs commercially called 8P8C plugs on each end but there are now some on the market with more advanced GG45 connectors designed for the newest Cat7 Ethernet networks. Wiring a patch panel is exactly the same as wiring an Ethernet jack. Lets start from the Network Switch and name each link. We are a leading supplier low voltage cables keystone jacks wall plates.
