 It is, however 5 years ago the choice was different and much smaller (in 
this category).  They have since switched from Freescale Power to ARM as 
the hardware platform, and presumably still use Linux with a custom app to 
drive it.

 Control CLI access is over SSHv2 over IPv4/IPv6; likewise serial port 
access (both ways).  Per-port and per-plug user accounts can be created.  
There's also control HTTPS and I believe telnet access available, but who 
needs that?  Of course both can be disabled.

 As I say I did quite a research at the time.  The usual manufacturers I 
knew of back then didn't have the features I needed.
