| Leviton patch panel|
| Hi, I am in the process of cabling a network in my brother's business to help him save some money and have one question. I am using 568b on the leviton quick port jacks and at the patch panel i need to know if i follow the color codes on the 110 type connectors on the back side of the panel is that 568a or 568b?|
Thank you in advance

You did not mention what brand or model # of Patch Panel you are using. In any case the color code used (T568A or B) should be marked on the strip and either be reversible or some manufacturers provide a 2nd strip with the other color code to make them universal. Most of the ones that I have seem that are on a 110 Straight clip are T568B. Years ago some manufacturers used a different color of printed circuit boards to indicate T568A or B and there were no other markings so be careful.
I would cut one circuit down now and test if the markings are not there.
