The cable constructed will be a 4-pair "straight thru" cable. A straight thru cable means that the color
of wire on one pin on one end of the cable, will be the same as the corresponding pin on the other
end. The cable will be wired to TIA/EIA-568-B or A standards for 10BASE-T Ethernet, which
determines what color wire is on each pin. T568-B, also called AT&T specification, is more common
in the United States. Many installations are also wired to T568-, also called ISDN.
