Yes, it is:

$ dpkg -l|grep network-manager
$ dpkg -l|grep modemmanager
ii  modemmanager                        1.0.0-2ubuntu1 
     amd64        D-Bus service for managing modems

Thanks Oli, that sounds reasonable. I tried it but:

$ service modemmanager status
modemmanager stop/waiting

$ dmesg |grep -i modemmanager
[    2.888050] init: modemmanager main process ended, respawning
[    2.923251] init: modemmanager main process ended, respawning
[    3.731722] init: modemmanager respawning too fast, stopped

$ cat modemmanager.override
# modemmanager - modem manager
# The ModemManager daemon manages the system's mobile broadband connections
# for NetworkManager.

start on startup

     [ -x /usr/sbin/ModemManager ] || stop
end script

exec /usr/sbin/ModemManager
