    Wouldn't you also need to strip the ends of the little wires?

    If you are in Australia or any other country that uses the T568A standard (as opposed to the T568B shown here) swap the orange and green pairs on both ends. Makes no electrical difference and the cables are interchangeable but it's what the structured cabling standard (AS/ACIF S009) specifies.
    The advantage of A is the inner two pairs map directly to phone colour code wiring.
    Also if you terminate one end as A and the other as B you've made a crossover cable.

    You can also make a cross cable out of this, so that you can connect two end terminals together, if in case you dont have a switch.
