When the RJ-45 connectors first came into use, they were primarily used for telephones. The great advances in technology created a need for another size connector and the RJ-45 was adapted to fit. There are 2 different RJ-45 connector sizes available:
1. for Cat 5 cable and
2. for Cat 6 cable. 

You have to make sure which one suited to their job. Basic difference is, the Cat 6 connector is larger than the Cat 5 connector.
