First of all, is this cable utp? It doesn't look like it is but because of the blurry photo I can't tell for sure.

If it is, you need to check the other side and make out the mapping to the standard colors, because this cable doesn't have them.
Of course if the other side is not connected then you don't care about the colors, just use the same mapping on both ends.

Just having the same mapping on both ends doesn't work unless EVERTHING is wired the same exact way.. I've tried it. If you have a cable wired straight through but using different colors than a network drop has, you get really bad signal quality.

I was having CAT6A dropping the speed down to 100Mbps because the patch cable going ftom the switch to the patch panel was wired straight through but not the same as the rest of the run.

Yes of course, I meant to come up with something like "I'll use arbitrarily the pink/blue/whatever on the weird wire as the green per the Τ568A/B standard".
