Static nodes are a configured set of trusted nodes. Static nodes are exempt from maximum peer and remote connection limits. Besu attempts to maintain connections with static nodes by periodically initiating a connection to any unconnected static node. Bootnodes and static nodes are parallel methods for finding peers.

How do ETH nodes find each other?
How Peers Are Found. Geth continuously attempts to connect to other nodes on the network until it has peers. If you have UPnP enabled on your router or run ethereum on an Internet-facing server, it will also accept connections from other nodes. Geth finds peers through something called the discovery protocol.
Is Ethereum testnet free?
