WiFi frequencies

I need help/info to find out how I can select/assign certain devices (preferably cell phones only) to 5ghz. And then put all guest & non-essentual phones on 2.4ghz. Thank you

My system is set up with one SSID for both bands.  When I connect a wifi device I just choose the combined SSID and the wifi system assigns the correct band to the device.  I have an older iPad that only works with 2.4 and it uses my single SSID.

But if you want to, you can separate the bands if you don't have the xFi Pods:
