MBX Launches Fast-Track Custom Bezel Program for HPE Servers

Streamlines Branding for OEMs Deploying Applications on Turnkey Hardware Systems

LIBERTYVILLE, IL (April 11, 2018) – At the RSA Conference opening next week in San Francisco, custom OEM server hardware manufacturer MBX Systems will showcase a new partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to supply customized bezels for HPE servers for HPE OEM partners. Available for 1U and 2U HPE Gen 9 and 10 servers, the program features modular bezel components that can be mixed and matched in 180+ RAL colors for OEM branding purposes and easily installed with a spring-loaded latch mechanism on finished systems. The modular strategy enables timely bezel painting, assembly and shipping for security vendors and other OEMs that deploy their applications on custom server systems.


MBX’s extensive customization options include:

  • Two frame styles for both the 1U and 2U platforms
  • Five brand logo shapes to emphasize the customer’s brand
  • The option to place branding logos left, center or right on the faceplate
  • Three mesh venting patterns to give systems a differentiated look
  • A choice of any RAL color on each bezel component


The new program will help OEMs create a strong brand identity in end customers’ server racks. All designs are pre-approved to meet HPE’s thermal requirements for airflow.


As an HPE OEM-Integrator Partner, MBX can also configure and integrate full HPE-based hardware systems that offer all of the benefits of the HPE OEM program. That includes an additional 90 days to HPE’s standard global warranty, compliance with global certification standards, cross-border services on HPE hardware, and extensive, global technical support.


OEMs using MBX’s hardware configuration and integration services also have access to MBX hardware program services ranging from a dedicated account team to consultative engineering, hardware/software optimization, branding, global logistics, component lifecycle management, and an optional managed inventory program that helps customers avoid inventory shortfalls, shorten deployment lead times, and eliminate fulfillment delays.


MBX will be exhibiting at Booth #1138 at the RSA Conference running April 16-20 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information about MBX’s bezel program or to place an order, visit www.OEMBezel.com.
