Re: Cable Colors
Hello Newbie here (hopefully I have the correct list),
As you can see, by and large, people assign colors to functions. What color to what function varies like the wind. Unlike a previous employer whose colo-manager person insisted on using colors to represent cable lengths (Doh!), color -> function mapping seems pretty universal.
About 7% of the male population in the US has red-green colorblindness, so keep that in mind. Simpler schemes trump more complex ones (as do most things in networking) and makes cable-purchasing/stocking less of an issue.
