LAN Cable Contest

Brought to you by

Build a LAN Cable, as fast as you can!

Have you ever built your own network cable? It’s so much fun, right? Right?! Do you know your TIA-568 A/B standards? Oh boy, have we got the contest for you! Get ready to unleash your inner network cable maestro and test your RJ-45 crimping prowess in the LAN cable contest!

YOUR MISSION should you choose to accept it, is to:

  1. wire up and crimp jacks on both ends of a network cable as fast as you can, all while adhering to either the TIA-568 A or B standard (pick your poison, but no crossovers allowed!).
  2. When you think it’s correct, plug your cable into the RJ-45 jacks to test it.
  3. Once your cable passes the test the timer stops and your time is recorded. See if you can rank on the leaderboard!
