FA – Foreign Agent

A Foreign Agent is a node in a MIP (Mobile IP) network that enables roamed IP users to register on the foreign network. The FA will communicate with the HA (Home Agent) to enable IP datagrams to be transferred between the home IP network and the roamed IP user on the foreign network.
