The meeting also provided Green Mountain Communications, Inc. staff an opportunity to provide a contractor company’s perspective to Chairman Pai regarding 5G deployment opportunities and the potential 5G deployment obstacles confronting the industry. Finally, Chairman Pai was able to learn about the National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) worker credentialing process involved for workers to obtain NWSA certification credentials during the visit.
