Out of curiosity: how did you exactly make the ATAs to send the keep-alives for you?
Did you write your own image?

Send some SIP keep-alive messages. SER drops non-SIP messages. If you are sorry
about too large messages, you could generate such which include only first line
and topmost via (elements which are always checked) and include a method check
in script, which drops them.
