When a ticket is created can I assign it the user with most available bandwidth?

This can be done with Automation for JIRA. Simply use the "Assign Issue" action and select "Assign to a member of a list or group". You will be then offered choice of "Load Balanced", "Round-robin" and "Random".
Load balanced assigning executes the given JQL and then looks for the users with lowest number of tickets assigned to them. This is great for Service Desks.
