Data Center Cabling Solutions

Z-Mount Brackets


If you’ve ever run out of rack space, and you don’t have room for a patch panel, you know it’s a challenging problem. It’s truly one of the most common issues people have when trying to address cable management issues in the data center. There is no space left in the racks for patch panels.

This dilemma is why we developed our Skinny-Trunk® Z-Mount® brackets.

Z-Mount brackets are designed to save valuable rack space and make managing your data center infrastructure easier. These zero U brackets simplify cable management.

Their precision thermoset plastic MTP® connections are 40 and 100G ready, and TIA 802.3ba compliant.


  • Universal mounting allows you to use the racks and cabinets you already have - our Z-Mount brackets fit any standard rack regardless of manufacturer.
  • Its unique design mounts to the outside of rack, using no horizontal rack space and ensuring the maximum use of your conditioned space.
  • Available in 4-, 8-, and 12-port MTP® (left and right) enabling you to distribute up to 144 fibers from just one Z-Mount.
  • Angled MTP® couplers’ precision ensures maximization of allowed connections and increases manageability for superior mating.
  • Field-reversible couplers allow trunks to be routed in from overhead or underfloor tray.
  • Also available with LC or CAT6 couplers.
  • Lifetime warranty comes standard with all CABLExpress® brand products.

Talk With Us About Your Cabling Design

CABLExpress has expanded its capabilities to provide you superior quality cable labeling.

We can customize labels to meet your individual needs and turn them around promptly.

Here are some common things people print out on their cable labels:

  • Serial Numbers - Indicating serial numbers can help remove questions, save time, and clarify cable properties instead of doing the hunt and peck routine.
  • Instructions - Having specific instructions can help save time and avoid mistakes.
  • Lengths
  • Bar Codes
  • Logos

These are just some quick examples, but there are plenty more. Anything that helps save time, make life easier, help prevent mistakes, and keep your cables more organized may be something worth labeling.

Labeling your cables is relatively inexpensive and can be worth the price. We have seen plenty of real-life cases of people using cable labels to help get more organized and take away pain resulting in cable messes.
