Anyone have recommendations for a gateway / ATA for business that can do
GroundStart? Preferably with an rj-21 – but okay if not..

An RJ-21 is the designation for a 66 block with 25 pair connector on the
GS is available with many channel banks though a T1 card and channel
bank might be overkill for your application.
Is this to go into a “legacy” switch?
Most have line cards that can be easily switched to Loop
Is this in the US, or ???
that system can also handle IP trunks, though the equipment might not be
available to you or outside your budget window
How does this relate to Asterisk, or does it?
Agreed NEC isn’t cheap. Their products are generally pretty good and
robust though. I have an earlier one still working for 18 years and counting
Of course, when one considers the asterisk machine, configuration time,
firewall and the rise in sip hacking sip trunking can easily turn into
exactly my other concern – can just drop sip card in and put on the net – would also have to get an sbc – which would be more than an ATA.
considering just using a cisco router (low end XM) and throwing a high density voice card in it

I’ve done that on a 2431. There’s nothing special about the T1 port.
I’ve made it into a fractional PRI and run the fa0/0 as the WAN or added
another T1 port and used that as the WAN.
