GRIP

(Globally Resilient IP) Features built into Cisco's IOS router operating system in 2002 that eliminate packet loss during a router switchover. Such features include Stateful Switchover, which transfers the state of the original router to the standby router, while Nonstop Forwarding maintains packet flow during the switchover.
