The lower priority outbound signaling packets (OSPs) that exist in the OSP sequencer do not need to be transmitted as frequent as the higher priority ones. This becomes critical when the control chan- nel is fully loaded with OSPs because if the lower priority OSPs are transmitted as frequent as the higher priority ones, the transmission timing requirement of the higher priority OSPs may not be fulfilled. Thus, an OSP transmission reduction mechanism is needed to reduce the transmission fre- quency of the lower priority OSPs.
