1. A method of reducing signaling during link setup in a wireless communication system, the method comprising:

  • receiving, at a device, at least two different access request messages each for establishing a link with the device;

    determining a period of time for transmitting access response messages in response to the received access request messages by;

    identifying a number of received access request messages;

    identifying a number of messages pending transmission, the number of messages including access response messages;

    generating the period of time based on the identified number of received access request messages and the number of messages pending transmission;

    obtaining a maximum period of time;

    comparing the maximum period of time to the generated period of time; and

    when the generated period of time is greater than the maximum period of time, determining the period of time as the maximum period of time and otherwise determining the period of time as the generated period of time;

    reserving a period of transmission time on a channel for transmitting the access response messages for establishing the link, the reservation based at least in part on the determined period of time; and

    transmitting the access response messages during the reserved period of time.
