NB. if the technology and peer support answer supervision, there will be an additional delay, waiting for that answer supervision to arrive (and you may find you don’t need as long an initial pause.

For DAHDI, at least over analogue lines, you can also reconstruct the number with the appropriate pseudo digits for dialling pauses.
