Cat5 Changeover Switch? Answered

Is there anyway to make a switch that switches between cat5 connections?

For example, if I have 5 wires running to a rack with some switches in it, and wire one goes bad, I want to be able to turn the switch and then it will start using wire number two instead.

How would I go about doing this?

Any help would be appreciated :)
