In Network field, the common hardware we all came across is a patch cord. Here, I have tried to show you a pictorial method for crimping the RJ45 connector with CAT5 cable. UTP Cat 5 cable is used for making connection upto 100m (maximum certifiable length) and giving a throughput ranging from 10Mbps to 1000Mbps. There are two types of UTP Ethernet cables connections made through using pattern – Straight-through and Crossover.

Straight-through cables

Use straight-through pattern for the following cabling:

• Hub to PC or server

• Switch to router

• Switch to PC or server

Crossover cables

Use crossover pattern for the following cabling:

• PC to PC

• Switch to switch

• Switch to hub

• Hub to hub

• Router to router

• Router to PC
