At the physical layer, near zero. If "jiggling and wiggling" is causing
cable failures, they have bigger problems. The last time I had problems with
"jiggle and wiggle" was with techs walking by ds3 xcon farms and "testing"
if the cables were "taught" enough with respect to the termination hardware.
If you pull on them enough, they will come apart and they will fail.
I'd love to see a picture of their xcon frames.
