Speed5G Workshop London welcome and opening presentation
Welcome to the workshop on Advanced Spectrum
Management in 5G networks
4 There is no fire alarm planned for today, so if we hear it, it’s
for real. Go out of here, down the marble steps and out of the
main entrance, and gather at St Paul’s cathedral.
4 Toilets, including a disabled toilet, are through the door
opposite, to the main corridor, and turn left.

Marconi was a determined guy
4 Born in 1874, by 1895 he had succeeded in transmitting a signal just over a
mile ‒ but the Italian Ministry of Posts & Telegraphs scribbled ‘to the
Longara’ on his report,
4 Marconi travelled to London and was introduced to William Preece,
engineer-in-chief to the General Post Office – a forerunner of today's BT.
And Preece listened!

4 In July 1896, Marconi successfully demonstrated
his wireless telegraphy system by sending a signal
between two Post Office buildings in central
London, 300m apart,
4 Right now we are on one of those sites, where the
Central Telegraph Office stood – and the plaque
shown is on the front of the building.
