RJ45 is really an example of what was originally a misconception

heard anyone say "8P8C connector?"
And then there's the 10C variant used on some serial port interfaces (like those from Equinox).....
'8 pin modular plug' is reasonable, though, and is what I'll typically say, with the modifier 'for stranded' or 'for
solid' conductors, as it does make a difference. I haven't said 'RJ45 plug' in years.
Yeah, it's a bummer that the keyed RJ45 plug got genericized to the unkeyed variant; at least the unkeyed plug used for
TIA568A/B will work in a true RJ45 jack.....
