We describe our collaborative efforts towards the design and implementation of a 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 NMS is specifically designed to address issues relevant to complex heterogeneous networks consisting of seamlessly interoperable terrestrial and satellite networks. NMSs are a key element for interoperability in such networks. 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 concerning the graphical user interface, browsing tools, performance data graphical widget displays, and management information database organization issues.
