Dear concerns, I ever think about the networking cables color codes, why these twisted pair cables are having two similar colors, such as (Example), Blue and white blue, there are several colores, which 1st cables color code setting person could use.

Re: Color Code 80 80

Wires with the same base color are paired, so it makes sense to distinguish them somehow as pairs. They can't both be a solid color or you'd confuse them on each end of the cable. Thus, the white stripe.

Re: Color Code 80 80

Really, nathanaelneal, are you? Odd, seeing as you are a consultant at a networking company. Odd that. Seem likely either you/your company are crap or you are asking these questions in order to add a spammy sig at some point. So which is it?

Dafinately happygeek, no one in this world has 100% knowledge about his/her field. we are not robots, we are human, and we should try to learn about new things regarding old things.

True, but an IT consultant specialising in networking would, you might imagine, know the basics about networking...

It depends somewhat. Sure, if you've taken classes on networking or electical engineering then cabling does get some treatment. If you've been trained on the job but never needed or been asked to snip cables, the color codes are unlikely to come up.

Even when consulting on networks, my go-to troubleshooting technique when it comes to cables is "try another cable", rather than "let me make sure your color codes are correct". ;) And for new networks, the detailed cabling aspects are typically done by the cabling agency who drops them rather than the consultant who helps design and/or optimize the network.

Re: Color Code 80 80

That said, when someone working as a consultant for a network cable company and with a signature link to a netywork cable company asks the question, as this chap just did elsewhere of 'what is the best cable' then I'm afraid he has been outed as yet another (or quite possibly the same old banned time and time again) network cable spammer...
