    I really dont get the “idea” of adding static mac on ports on a switch ….
    What is the purpose of this option ?

      Can you tell where you found that idea?

      Not enough detail so I’ll guess

      The usual reason is security. Only the device (PC or other thing) with that MAC address would work on that port. Consumer grade switches don’t do this but you left out detail so my short answer is security.
