What does a hop count of 16 mean in RIPv1?

EXPLANATION




RIPv1 is a Classful routing protocol. Classful routing protocols support only the networks which are not subnetted. The maximum number of hops allowed for RIP is 15,
which limits the size of networks that RIP can support. A hop count of 16 is considered an infinite distance and the route is considered unreachable.
