DTMF relay in H.323 using signalUpdate message

Upon reception of a DTMF digit from the end user, the Cisco H.323 MGW configured in out of band signal mode sends a User Input Indication (UII) signal message, with a length of 4s:

h245Control: 1 item

Item 0

Item: 14 octets

H.245

PDU Type: indication (3)

indication: userInput (13)

userInput: signal (3)

signal

signalType: 1

duration: 4000

rtp

timestamp: 4001535283

logicalChannelNumber: 1

When the end user releases digit key, the MGW sends a UII signalUpdate message to update the DTMF duration to the actual duration (here 125 ms):

h245Control: 1 item

Item 0

Item: 9 octets

H.245

PDU Type: indication (3)

indication: userInput (13)

userInput: signalUpdate (4)

signalUpdate

duration: 125

rtp

logicalChannelNumber: 1

This behavior is not a fault technically, but it causes problems with some equipments that do not recognize well the UII signalUpdate message.

I'm using IOS 5300 Software (C5300-IK8S-M), Version 12.2(15)T14.

Is this behavior still the same is more recent versions, or is it possible to change this behavior as follows:

1?) Send the signal message with a fixed duration much lower than 4s (typically around 100 ms), or

2?) Send the signal message ony when the DTMF duration is known (hence avoiding the signalUpdate)?

Re: DTMF relay in H.323 using signalUpdate message

Possible workaround may be to send an extra unneeded digit which seems to implicitly indicate the previous digit is ended.

Well, we don't have any control over this: the digits are dialed by the end user. There's no such thing as an unneeded digit either in telephony....
