When terminating a straight through cable use the same standard for both sides, i.e T-568A in one side and T-568A on the other end . The color code is, white orange, orange, white green, blue, white blue, green, white brown, brown. But the crossover cable is terminated using T-568A standard on one end and T-568B on the other end. the color code for T-568B is, white green, green, white orange, blue, white blue, orange, white brown, brown,
 
The difference between T-568A and T-568B is the position of orange and green pairs.
 
The difference is the position of the orange and green pairs of cables. For straight through, use this color code for both ends, white orange, orange, white green, blue, white blue, green, white brown, brown. But for crossover, use this color code on one end, (white orange, orange, white green, blue, white blue, green, white brown, brown), and on the other end, use (white green, green, white orange, blue, white blue, orange, white brown, brown) color code on the other end.

A straight-through cable is different from a crossover cable. In a straight-through cable, the arrangement of the color-coded cables on 1 end of the cable should exactly be the same on the other end of the cable. It is a Cat 5 cable that has similar wiring on both ends. This cable layout is used on Local Area Networks or LAN.

A crossover cable is only done if you wish to create a network between 2 computers. The arrangement of the color-coded cables is very different from the one used on LAN or the straight-through cable. Pins 1, 2, 3, and 6 are crossed over to pins 3, 6, 1, and 2 [this is the right sequence] respectively.
