Dynamic Versus Static Routing

Dynamic routing certainly has several advantages over static routing. However, static routing is still used
in networks today. In fact, networks typically use a combination of both static and dynamic routing.
Consider each of the features in above table, and briefly list the advantages and disadvantage of dynamic
routing and static routing.
