T568A Wiring Standard

The less commonly used method for creating applications is the 568a wiring standard. The only time you will usually see the T568A wiring standard used in applications is when they are directly related to audio or voice transfers.

When you are using the 568A wiring standard you will note that it is slightly different than the T568B method. Using the T568A wiring standard connect the white/green wire to pin number one , Green to pin 2, White/Orange to pin 3, Blue to pin 4, White/Blue to pin 5, Orange to pin 6, White/Brown to pin 7, and Brown to pin 8.

The 568A wiring standard is mostly used in voice and audio transfer applications. The installation process for the 568A wiring standard is the exact same as the T568B wiring standard. You have to gently remove the the top one inch of the protective plastic sleeve and untwist each set of wires. Then you need to flatten the wires and slide them into their correct pins, trim the cables down to one half inch length and use your crimping tool to crimp the wire.
