Foreign visited network refers to any network a mobile device connects to in other countries than the own.

This is only relevant for outbound roamers. The home operator should be able to observe the MCC/MNC of the foreign visited network.

In some cases, the home operator may be able to learn the position of the outbound roamers at sub-country (regional) level (e.g. MSC area or SGSN area). If such information is available, it might be helpful for analysing mobility patterns of outbound roamers at a better degree of spatial detail (e.g., region or city of the visited foreign country).
