    It reminds me (except the wire is cat5) of a mainframe room i worked in during the late 70’s you know the kind toggles to enter data and papertape reels.Is this a server farm.

    This is pretty much what happens when you have too many routers racked together. I’m pretty sure this is the case here. Usually they break up the location of the routers so that cable management is an easier task. I’d sure hate to be the guy to troubleshoot a bad cable in this place!

    Judging by the thickness of those cables, it looks like they are cat6 cables and being that there are soo many of them, this picture can’t be too old, maybe 3 years tops.

    I sure hope those are shielded, assuming they are plugged into something.

    This looks to me like it belongs to the cheapest (or only) ISP of a 250,000 population city

    Looks like it could be in the Terre Haute Main phone office DACS 3/1 patch panel upstairs

    – Yeah we are having some problem, tried to fix it our self by moving a a couple of those yellow cables around just in case they where loose, but it didn’t help.
    Could you come fix it real quick, we have a deadline this afternoon….
