When the cables is in place, it's time to connect al the Ethernet Outlets and the Patch-Panel.

Connect the wires inside each Ethernet Outlet, using the modular tool (KRONE-Tool) and the 'T568B' color markings. Follow the steps 1 to 4, as shown by the images below.

Also Take a look at the Patch panel installation, you find some nice information.
