A registered jack (RJ) is a standardized physical network interface for connecting telecommunications or data equipment. Cables transmit information along the length. Only the right connection to an RJ45 interface or RJ45 connector will realize the transmission. And the cable run needs a connector termination, requiring a jack, normally an RJ45 jack, to plug into. RJ45 connectors are commonly seen with Ethernet network cables. Ethernet cables with RJ45 connectors are also called RJ45 cables. These RJ45 cables feature a small plastic plug on each end, and the plugs are inserted into RJ45 jacks of Ethernet devices. What is RJ45? Are you confused about different RJ45 interface types?

What Is RJ45 Interface?

RJ45 interface is considered the most common twisted-pair connector for Ethernet cables and networks.

"RJ" means "registered jack" — a standardized telecommunication network interface for connecting voice and data equipment to a service provided by a local exchange carrier or long-distance carrier.

"45" is the number of the interface standard.

Physically speaking, the connectors that registered jacks use are mainly the modular connector and 50-pin miniature ribbon connector types. RJ45 connector is an 8-position, 8-contact (8P8C) modular plug, and jack, applied for Ethernet-based local area networks (LAN). RJ45 cable plug is usually made of a plastic piece with eight pins on the port. Four of the pins are used for sending and receiving data, and the other four are used for other technologies or power networking devices.

You cannot plug in an RJ45 connector to an RJ11 slot but the opposite is possible. Although the smaller size of RJ11 makes it easier to be plugged into the RJ45 slot, it is not recommended to do that since this may damage the device that adopts the RJ45 slot.
