Hi, can anyone tell if there is a standard colour coding for network cables. I mean cables for connecting routers, switches, computers etc. I don't mean the wiring standads of T568a & B ? i have seen different clour cables in use in switch rooms but not sure if there is an industry standard or is it personal taste.......... personally I like the blue ones!

I've never heard of a standard, and I've seen installations wired with every color under the rainbow and many with no colors at all. I just use cable ID tags for installations.

I used to have different colored Ethernet cables running to my router from different rooms, just to help me, when trouble shooting problems in a specific room. I've since moved to wireless connections.
