I've used Cisco 2500 routers for this type of service, using the AUX 
port and a roll-over cable to connect to the target device.  I'm talking 
2501s mostly, not the 2511 or 2508, unless you need to control more than 
one device at a specific location.

Ethernet, AUX port, SSH, firewall.  Updates are sketchy, but these are 
mature devices.
