| LAN INFORMATION PACKET|
I'm working on a NAED course (VDV)for voice, data & video. I'm trying to determine what information should be in a packet given to a building's owner upon completion of the telecom and datacom network installation?

The package you are referring to is commonly known as "As-Builts".
At a minimum these should include:
Floor plans, with the locations of workstation outlets, their identication number, the location of the Telecommunication Rooms and the major routing of the cables as well as a legend of the different symbols used.
Riser/Campus plans showing the routing and quantity of the various feed cables between Telecommunication Rooms and POE as well as any support details.
Detailed plans and elevation views of the various equipment frames, wall fields, etc. showing placement of the equipment and identification of the components.
Sketches of Wall Plates, patch panels, wiring blocks, etc. should componet identification and methods of labeling and identifications.
Database of all cables run including identification number, type of cable, origination point and termination locations.
Database of test results indicating type of test, pass/fail information, date of test and information on what equipment was used for the testing.
This and much more can be found in the TIA/EIA Telecommunication Building Wiring Standards published by Global Engineering.
