IEEE ICC Press Release

SAN JOSE, California, May 15, 2024/PRNewswire/— B-Yond announced today that its pioneering research in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Large Language Models (LLM), and Generative AI (GenAI) has been recognized by the world’s largest technical society, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 

The research paper titled "LLMcap: Large Language Model for Unsupervised PCAP Failure Detection" addresses critical challenges in identifying failures in Packet Capture (PCAP) data. This innovative use of LLM in telecommunications offers significant benefits, including: 

1.     Self-Supervised Learning: Adapt to various use cases without relying on extensive manual annotation, using self-supervised learning. This reduces the dependency on scarce labeled data, speeding up the deployment of new services. 

2.     High Accuracy Failure Detection: Achieve high accuracy in detecting failures within PCAP data, identifying abnormalities and failures in the data exchanged between network components. This improves the Mean Time to Detect and Repair, enhancing customer experience and cloud migrations. 

3.     Language Learning Capabilities: Employ masked language modeling to learn grammar, context, and structure from PCAP files. This approach detects hidden failures, measures abnormalities in message sequences and timing, and yields critical insights for network analysis. 

In acknowledgment of this groundbreaking work, theB-Yond data science team has been invited to present at the IEEE InternationalConference on Communications (ICC) on June 13, 2024, at 11:15 AM MST in Denver,Colorado. The presentation will take place during a workshop focusing on theImpact of Large Language Models on 6G Networks. 

The ICC, hosted annually by the IEEE CommunicationsSociety, is a global premier event that attracts over 2,000 participants frommore than 70 countries. It features a rich program of keynote sessions,technical papers, tutorials, workshops, and industry sessions. As a significantinternational platform for communication technology discourse, the ICCsubstantially contributes to the IEEE's vast publication archive and plays acrucial role in establishing new industry standards.
