We describe our collaborative effort towards the design and implementation of next generation integrated network management system for Hybrid networks(INMS/HN).We describe the overall software architecture of the system at its current stage of development.This network management system is specifically designed to address issues relevant for complex heterogeneous networks consisting of seamlessly interoperable terrestrial and satellite networks. Network management systems are a key element for interoperability in such network. We describe the integration of configuration management and performance management. The next step in this integration is fault management. In particular, we describe the object model, issues of the Graphical User Interfaces (GUI), browsing tools and performance data graphical widget displays, management information database (MIB) organization issues. Several components of the system are being commercialized by Hughes Network Systems.
