RU is actually a rack unit. It is 1.75" (44.5 mm). A 7' high rack normally has 45 RU available for components. A 48-port patch panel normally takes 2RU.
8W8P (8 wires-8pins) or, as I would rather put it 8P8C - eight pins - eight conductors - signifies a plug or jack that is usually referred to as RJ-45 (although 8P8C would be better designation)
