  • Making a network cable the right way

    September 23, 2016 no comment

    A recent network troubleshooting led to a faulty cable which was made by our client.  Here are some common mistakes we have seen when our clients running/making/terminating their own network cables.

    • T568B standard was not followed
    • Not all 4 pairs were used
    • CAT5 cables were still used
    • Cables were not properly tested after being terminated
    • Plenum cables were not used when running cables above ceiling
