As a network administrator for a company, you want to configure an IP route between two routers. Of static and dynamic routing, which is more appropriate?

Using a dynamic IP would mean that the people that logged on to their device would be almost invisible because they could simply log off and log back on to get a new IP address thus making it much harder to find someone on the network doing something wrong. When using a dynamic routing it would be much easier since you could change the subnet and it would be as if nothing ever changed the computer would still be able to access everything. But in the long run a static IP is much more ideal for a company, dynamic is more along the lines of a 56k dial-up connection. Static is also much more reliable for voice over the internet as well as the ideal choice for any server because of the speed it gives for uploading files. The other great thing is you could hid your IP (since it does not change) you may not want people to know the address, you could easily hide it from people who send out emails that you do not want, also known as spam. It could be an issue if your IP was ever discovered, since it does not change but all in all I think that it would be an ideal choice from the many other features that it can offer the company this my reasoning in choosing static over dynamic.
