Telecom Modular Jack selection criteria;

Cable connections are some what straight forward, so this addresses Board mounted connectors.
First select the number of pins required; RJ11, RJ45 and so on.
Second, select the mounting style Through-hole or Surface Mount [SMT]
Third, the number of individual connections required; Single, Dual, Ganged ...
Are communication LEDs required
Is EMI Shielding required, internal device shielding or external shielding
Is pin filtering required

Modular Telephone Jack [MTJ] Characteristics
Ferrite Filtered Jacks
Shielded Jacks: External Shield, Internal Shield
LED Jacks
Single or Ganged Jack or Stacked Jacks [PCB mount only]
Top and Side Entry Jacks [PCB mount only], only relates to single modules
Enclosed Body / Open Body [PCB mount only], only relates to single Jack modules
Thru-hole and SMT Jacks [PCB mount only]
RJ-11, RJ14, or RJ45 Jacks; or 4, 6, 8, or 10 positions.
Modular Jacks [Female, normally board mount]
Modular Plugs [Male, normally cable end]

Of course you can combine any or all of these different characteristics into a single part number.
