If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!

Wiring up the infrastructure of a business is a lot like shearing sheep. Most anyone can do it, but most people haven't learned the skills to do it right. It's not that it's that difficult, but that it requires certain tools and learned techniques in order to do well. The materials and tools are easy enough to find, and granted - it's not rocket science, but there are some things that often go wrong:

  • The cable itself is easy to kink while fishing through tight spaces, which sometimes breaks one of the small internal wires, or tears the insulation.
  • There are two basic schemes for terminating the ends: 568A and 568B. It is essential that the same scheme is used for both ends, unless you are trying to create a crossover scenario.
  • To be done properly, there should only be 1/2" of wires "untwisted" at each connector. Not easy to do...
