Setting up multi-domain End-to-End (E2E) links in the Géant service area is a complex process. The procedures for ordering, setting up and managing multi-domain links are complicated since it is necessary to accommodate the variety of single domain procedures in a unifying federated process. All the involved National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) have to collaborate with each other to accomplish the task of providing the multi-domain E2E Link service. It is therefore essential that all the needed information is being shared systematically between the involved NRENs. In this poster, we will present the I-SHARe tool, which is the result of a joint collaboration within the Gèant community, and is developed together by DFN, GARR, SWITCH and PSNC. I-SHARe's intention is to foster the inter-organizational processes and to assist the NRENs' network operating teams during the whole life cycle of an E2E link. I-SHARe provides an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI), which supports the NRENs in collaborating with each other. The outlined main aspects of I-SHARe are supplemented by appealing graphical impressions of the implemented version, stressing its suitability for network teams' daily work
