Corporate Bandwidth Usage Policies and Recommendations

Hello EE,

I've been asked to provide a training or overview of appropriate network use to our new hires.  Some suggestions are not transferring large files during the day, surfing videos or non business related.  I am hoping somebody had done this and has a template, presentation or has seen one online they can point me to?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a Human Resources item, not a technical item. The acceptable computer use policy is a management decision with career implications. We create, implement, maintain and monitor the network and corporate computers we can only monitor/report to management

I'm asking from a technical perspective what are the most bandwidth intense: Video, streaming?
I'm trying to design COS and I know voice in one but trying to build around others best practice

That is entirely different than the initial question.
Now you are talking about Quality of Service which has nothing to do with 'appropriate network use'  for new hires.

QOS policies are set by the administrators for the network. VOIP being the most important and the one that latency issues are most apparent.  Users have absolutely no control over these and it would be pointless to discuss this with new hires unless they are on the networking team management.
