Distance Vector Routing Algorithm - Concept
Class of routing algorithms that iterate on the number of hops in a route to find a shortest-path spanning tree. Distance vector routing algorithms call for each router to send its entire routing table in each update, but only to its neighbors. Distance vector routing
algorithms can be prone to routing loops, but are computationally
simpler than link state routing algorithms. Also called Bellman-Ford
routing algorithm. See also link state routing algorithm and SPF.
