    How are the Color Codes 568A and 568B different?

    Issue:
    The difference between T568A and T568B color codes is needed.

    Product Line:
    Cables and Connectivity Solutions, Patch Panels

    Environment:
    CAT6PNL-24 and CAT6PNL-48, all serial ranges. 

    Cause:
    Not following the correct color code can cause wiring errors.

    Answer: 
    568A and 568B are color code standards that show which color wire matches up with a specific position on an RJ45 connector. When designing a network infrastructure only one color code can be followed. All commercial and residential wiring in the US follows TIA 568B color code. Some Federal agencies had historically followed 568A, but many have changed to 568B.
