Hybrid mobile communication is a mixed mode network version of wired and wireless components. Hybrid networks occur in many situations such as a military warfare theatre and extended range commercial cellular networks. This paper proposes an integrated configuration management approach for hybrid communication networks. The issues addressed and resolved by the proposed approach are: (i) an automated configuration management system using a clustering technique, self organizing map (SOM) implemented by neural networks; (ii) a novel network self-healing survivability approach to handle the network failure scenario; (iii) network performance integration in the design and reconfiguration of hybrid networks.
