 wiring 110 patch panel
I have a ortoronics 24 port patch panel and am unsure as to the order of the wires? is it white/blue blue or blue white/blue from right to left. the panel is T568B and there are color codes in between the pair of blue orange green brown?
Thanks for your help

Dear Tom,

When you look at it from behind, you may notice that the ports are numbered from right to left. That's why white/blue comes to the right side and blue to the left one. You should not swap 2nd and 3rd pair as you terminate it because Ortronics already took care of layout schemes inside the panel on the PCB.
