| Gel Cable|
|What are the disadvantages of not removing Gel cable feeders that are no longer in use but have been cut and still terminated on the mainframe.|
Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 17 Dec 2007
You mean, gel-filled feeder cables?
They can burn VERY well since the gel is oil-based. Besides large feeder cables use up a lot of space that you may actually need for something else - equipment or other cross-conects to be used.
And if you need a little extra incentive for removing the cables - think of all the copper you can recycle!
