Their router OS's CLI would be quite familar to anyone familar with 
Cisco's IOS.  The verb and noun have been switched to stave off Cisco 
lawsuit threats for using something similar to their CLI.  Other than that 
it's quite close to the feel of IOS.  You won't get anything out of their 
swtiches though.  They are all menu driven.  I never have been able to 
work out and expect script to manipulate it.  Their different switch 
families have different interfaces as well.  The ELS/VH line is a far cry 
different from their 2/5/6/9000 line.  The new E1 series is supposed to be 
different yet.  IIRC it has a CLI though.  I have numerous firmware 
releases I can load onto a router for testing too if needed.
