    Small network patch leads

    I am trying to locate someone who can supply network patch leads in small lengths - ie. 0.15m. I would want them in grey, blue, orange, green, red and yellow.

    Does anyone know of a supplier who could provide these? I am having trouble finding one. I would need about 500 all together, so *really really* don't want to make them myself.

    Who does your network installations? Whoever they are, they are likely to be able to make up patch cables to any length and colour you require, as they have the tools to do it.

    Also, I do understand that such short cables aren't certifiable as cat 5e as they don't have the number of twists in them...

    They don't seem to do custom or small size cables there.
