For contractors installing at the end of an infrastructure network the Whisper offers unparalleled flexibility and is simple to use, rendering it a worthwhile investment for any contractor to the multiple system operators.

The Whisper was designed for microfiber cable sizes in the 2-8.5 mm diameter range. Now the Whisper can be configured to be additionally compatible with flat drop fibers with or without tracer wires from various manufacturers.
