Link2Mobile. Research in Motion (RIM) is planning to install a server in Saudi Arabia as a way to prevent the BlackBerry ban by the local government.

There are several reports BlackBerry disturbance in the country, but users still can access the service on Friday night.

That was several hours after the royal party to stop the service by reason of disturbing national security.

A source who knows the information negotiation RIM and Saudi Arabia said that both parties agree to meet virtually.

"We're looking for the best technical solution with RIM. The presence server may be the best, "said the source who did not want to be named.

However, the RIM in Canada declined to comment about those discussions.

Sources said that two options to solve the problems both sides are building a server in Saudi Arabia or to present a path that allows the government access to data in cases deemed to affect national security.

RIM is currently facing pressure to open the network security encryption on the basis of the Government regarding the stability of the country.

On the other hand, is not clear how long it takes to end the ban on this access, if both parties do not reach a compromise.

United Arab Emirates can access their data with the local server, or key encryption technology used in BlackBerry, said Shardul Shrimani, an analyst at IHS Global Insight for the Middle East and North Africa.

"The main concern for the government is their inability to monitor the communications business. The government worried that the existence of minority groups who will use the BlackBerry for illegal activities," said Shrimani
