Are the color codes shown on this site applicable for Australia? as I have seen indoor color codes, outdoor color codes and backbone color codes! can some one please explain? what are the differences?

Dear Michael,

The 25-pair and 4-pair color codes are actually international. You may still see some older not IS 11801 standard-compliant cables with different color codes, but the new stuff you buy will be coded as shown here.
