    Static routing and dynamic routing are not mutually exclusive. Both dynamic routing and static routing are usually used on a router to maximise routing efficiency and to provide backups in the event that dynamic routing information fails to be exchanged.

    Static routing is a type of network routing technique. Static routing is not a routing protocol; instead, it is the manual configuration and selection of a network route, usually managed by the network administrator.

    Static routing is a form of routing that occurs when a router uses a manually-configured routing entry, rather than information from a dynamic routing traffic. ... Unlike dynamic routing, static routes are fixed and do not change if the network is changed or reconfigured.

    Static routing is a form of routing that occurs when a router uses a manually-configured routing entry, rather than information from a dynamic routing traffic. In many cases, static routes are manually configured by a network administrator by adding in entries into a routing table, though this may not always be the case. Unlike dynamic routing, static routes are fixed and do not change if the network is changed or reconfigured. Static routing and dynamic routing are not mutually exclusive. Both dynamic routing and static routing are usually used on a router to maximise routing efficiency and to provide backups in the event that dynamic routing information fails to be exchanged. Static routing can also be used in stub networks, or to provide a gateway of last resort.

    Static routing is a type of network routing technique. Static routing is not a routing protocol; instead, it is the manual configuration and selection of a network route, usually managed by the network administrator. It is employed in scenarios where the network parameters and environment are expected to remain constant.

    Static routes are configured on the device manually, by the network engineer. Static routing can be used to define an exit point from a router when no other routes are available or necessary. This is called a default route.Static routing is often used to help transfer routing information from one routing protocol to another.

    A static route is one of three main methods a router uses to store information about its neighbors. There are pluses and minuses when considering the use of a static route so be sure to do a bit of research before you decided if a static route is right for you. Here is a great video which explains the fundamentals of static routes.
