What is an RJ45 connector used for?

An RJ45, also named 8P8C connector is most commonly used in network and telecommunication applications. It can also be used for other data type communications, such as serial.

What is the difference between a solid and stranded connector?

A solid RJ45 connector has 3 teeth that pinch the solid wire to ensure good contact. A stranded RJ45 connector contains 2 teeth that bite the strands to hold the wire in place. Stranded is typically used when you are making your own patch cables.
