T568A/B wiring

So long as each connection is consistent, yes. You must have 568A on 
both ends of each patch cord, or 568B on both ends of each patch panel, 
or you'll have created a "Crossover" connection that swaps transmit and 

Of course, sometimes crossover connections are desireable, but for 
ordinary "straight through" connections, you'll be OK as long as both 
ends of each wire have the same wiring, i.e., both 568A or both 568B.
