| Which to use 568A or 568B?|
|What are the pros and cons of using 568a versus 568B?|
Can you mix the two?
Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 04 Dec 2002
The 568A is a bit more convenient when you have to deal with 2-pair digital phones AND Ethernet devices, running on the same cabling system. If it's 1-pair digital or analog phones and Ethernet devices, it does not really matter.
You absolutelly cannot mix the pin layout in one cabling system
