CABLExpress Introduces Angled Patch Panels at Data Center World Conference

New offering for structured cabling solutions improves manageability and reduces installation time


LAS VEGAS, March 15, 2016, Data Center World Conference – CABLExpress announced today from the Data Center World Global Conference the launch of its angled patch panels, which improve the manageability and reduce the installation time of fiber cabling infrastructures. The angled patch panels feature a slanted design to route patch cords directly into vertical cable managers on both sides, eliminating the need for horizontal cable management.

“Our products and solutions help data center professionals simplify cable management, increase efficiencies, and save time,” said Peter Belyea, president of CXtec, the parent company of CABLExpress. “The angled patch panels also allow users to maximize their rack space, providing room for other critical technologies and enabling future growth.”



The angled patch panels hold up to 96 fibers (1U) or 192 fibers (2U), and are part of the CABLExpress Skinny-Trunk Solution, a high-density fiber optic cabling system.

The Skinny-Trunk angled patch panels feature:

  • A modular design to allow for scalability and future growth
  • Mixed-media options to allow integration with copper infrastructure
  • Internal cable managers to maintain proper bend radius
  • Flexible design to accept four or eight adapter panels and/or modules
  • Low loss components to allow adaptability in fiber network design
  • Adaptability with multiple connector types in each enclosure
  • Precision, stable spring couplers to maximize performance and ensure network uptime

The AFCOM Data Center World Global Conference is taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from March 14-18. Rick Dallmann, senior data center infrastructure architect at CABLExpress, will be speaking on the topic “Designing Next Generation SAN/Storage Optical Infrastructure – Why Low Link (Budget) Loss is Critical” on Wednesday, March 16 at 9:30 a.m. Experts will also be available at CABLExpress booth 638 on the exhibit floor to discuss data center trends and layer one infrastructure solutions.
