 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
Dear Marcus,

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!
