RPC - remote procedure call

I quote ", RPC(Remote Procedure Call) is a set of protocols and interfaces that the client interacts with blockchain system . The user can query the blockchain related information (such as block number, blocks, node connection, etc.) and send the transaction request through RPC interface."

Does NXT have similar RPC call, could someone give a comparative synopsis? I've found an open source block explorer that mentions RPC login, password and port # so not sure how it's similar to NXT.

This is the only API which an Nxt node provides: NXT API
