    I am not talking about the pinout; I know those. I am wondering if there is a standard for cable type and what it is connecting to.
    For example; I tend to make connections from Wan ports to modems BLUE cable, switches to routers red, workstations to any lan (switch, hub,etc) grey and server connections yellow.
    This helps me when I am in my wiring closets get a quick idea of whats what.

    ** I was wondering if there is some kind of standard out there?**
