The invention is a method that allows BSS to configure or de-configure PCCCH timeslots dynamically based on the need of signaling in a PCCCH-enabled cell to resolve the drawbacks of the fixed number of PCCCH timeslots. The invention allows the BSS to configure or de-configure a PCCCH timeslot dynamically depending on the load utilization on PRACH (uplink) and PPCH (downlink) blocks, only when certain predefined criteria are satisfied.
