    HTTP Header Enrichment Overview

    Mobile subscribers accessing Web-based services often need to have content added to the Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP) headers sent back and forth as part of the client-server exchange. This HTTP header enrichment is a feature that can be configured on the MobileNext Broadband Gateway for an Access Point Name (APN).

    HTTP header enrichment adds information such as the Mobile Subscriber ISDN (MS-ISDN) number to HTTP headers.

    For example, this feature can add the last line to this sequence of HTTP headers:

    GET /256k.html HTTP/1.1Host: */*Accept-Language: en-usAccept-Encoding: gzip, deflateUser-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; NET CLR 1.1.4322name: valueX-MSISDN: <MSISDN #>

    You configure HTTP header enrichment by installing one or more Multiservices Dense Port Concentrators (MS-DPCs) in the broadband gateway chassis, and configuring and applying a service set to the mobile interface for the configured APN. This feature maintains statistics for the flows to which it is applied.
