Okay, it's Friday, and I'm waiting for 5:00. This is a cabling history question. Why is it that the 568A and 568B standards used 1,2,3,&6? Why did they "jump" over 4&5? was it because telephones on Cat3 used 4&5? That's the only reason I can think of. Why didn't they use 1,2,7,&8 instead? Some theoretical reason? Would the EMFs caused problems?
