TN2224B to RJ45 patch panel.

TN2224B to RJ45 patch panel.

TN2224B to RJ45 patch panel.

Hi all,

I hope you can help.  I need to wire up an RJ45 Patch Panel for use with a TN2224B(24port 2Wire DCP Card), before I start I just want to make sure I had the right idea.

Do I simply jumper each of the pairs of the Amphenol cable to each pin 4 and 5 on the back of the patch panel ?


Blue-White   / White-Blue    to pin 4&5 of port 1
Orange-White / White-Orange  to pin 4&6 of port 2
                    and so on until
Brown-purple / Purple-Brown  to pin 4&5 of port 24

Any help you can provide would be most appreciated

Thanks again


RE: TN2224B to RJ45 patch panel.

Sorry to jump in here, but I find this intertesting. Could whoever can answer Switchmans question, also explain to me in simple terms what an Amphenol cable is?

RE: TN2224B to RJ45 patch panel.

That is exactly what you need to do, and for organization matters i have installed a Lucent 110 distribution panel between all amphenols and RJ45 patch panels, but is the same idea.

BIS: The Amphenol it's a standart type of connector used to connect a 25 pair cable to the Definity (or any other equipment) backplane, and comes in male-female conectors. The Definity side is the female part and the multipair cable comes whit the male part.

This is the complete pin-out and color table for a 25pair cable.
You can use this table for a TN2224B(24port 2Wire DCP Card).
