 TSB-95 Cable
I am looking for a cable standard that uses all 4 pairs and why?
I think it is TSB-95, but I am not sure. If it is,
what is the color grouping of the pairs in this cable? What does each wire functionally do? Advantages and disadvantages of using this type of cable standard over another standard?

Dear Ben,

TSB-95 is not a cable standard, it is a testing standard that was published for the testing of category 5e in the earlier days. It has been incorporated into the latest standard and is no longer available a separate Technical Bulletin.

I believe what you are looking for is either the T568A or T568B wiring standard, both use all 4 pairs)

see this url for the pin outs.
