A registered jack (RJ) is a standardized physical network interface for connecting telecommunications or data equipment. The physical connectors that registered jacks use are mainly of the modular connector and 50-pin miniature ribbon connector types. The most common twisted-pair connector is an 8-position, 8-contact (8P8C) modular plug and jack commonly referred to as an RJ45 connector.
What is an RJ45 Connector?
- An 8-pin/8-position plug or jack is commonly used to connect computers onto Ethernet-based local area networks (LAN).
- Two wiring schemes–T568A and T568B–are used to terminate the twisted-pair cable onto the connector interface.
