IP Camera Cable Termination Guide

By: John Scanlan, Published on Sep 06, 2018

Terminating cables properly is critical to network performance, but it can be a tricky task with multiple steps. Fortunately, this task is easy to manage and get right when the proper tools, connectors, and methods are understood.

In this guide, we teach the key points of network cable termination, including:

  • Tools used for terminating: Strippers, cutting tools, punch down and crimp tools
  • Connectors and patch panels
  • Jacks vs. modular plugs
  • How to terminate modular plugs
  • How to terminate and install RJ45 jacks
  • How to punch down patch panels
  • Speciality modular plugs
  • Differences in Cat 5e and Cat 6 connectors

Plus, we include 4 video demonstrations on stripping cable jackets, terminating RJ45 mod tips, terminating CAT 6 network cable to a keystone jack and patch panel termination.

This is part of our ongoing series of installation guides including:

Direct Connect Vs. Jack And Patch

Before any discussion of terminating cables, users should decide whether cables will be terminated with a modular plug directly into the camera (direct connect), or if a jack will be installed with a short patch cable to the camera or other device (jack and patch).

Direct connect is most common in IP cameras, but installers should be aware that not all users prefer this method. Some bid specs may require a jack to be installed, as well. Additionally, cables are rarely terminated to plugs at the switch/NVR end but are instead typically terminated to a patch panel to more easily facilitate labeling and moves and changes.
