There is only so much network bandwidth to go around. This sample policy will help you ensure that users are not jeopardizing key applications and business processes with casual video browsing and other bandwidth hogs.

Excessive use of information technology resources by a particular user, or for a particular activity, reduces the amount of resource available to satisfy the needs of other users. Excessive use may degrade or jeopardize system functionality, and can result in significant costs to the university. It is important to allocate information technology resources in such a way that prioritizes uses that directly serve the university mission, avoids or eliminates service degradation, and enables the most effective overall use of university information technology resources.

This policy, provided by IU's University Information Policy Office, applies to all users of Indiana University information technology resources regardless of affiliation, and irrespective of whether those resources are accessed from on-campus or off-campus locations.
