We would recommend using an inline coupler at either end of the SWA cable as SWA network cable is difficult to terminate using plugs or faceplates.

Join the SWA to a standard Cat 5e or 6 cable using an inline coupler as shown in the example below. 

Different brands of couplers are wired in different ways so it is important to follow the instructions provided with the coupler. You can often find that the coupler has labelling on it's base to show where each core goes. The coupler available from Connectec here is wired as follows
