ssid that only broadcast on 5Ghz band

How do i create SSID that ONLY broadcast 5Ghz band? From WLC>WLAN>ssid>radio_policy has several options: all, a only, a/g only, g only, b/g only.

- Is this where I'm choosing option for 5Ghz only?

- which option should I choose?

- There 's no document that described these options' characteristic. e.g. does a-only included a, ac,  and n? what's a/g encompassed?

There 's no document that described these options' characteristic. e.g. does a-only included a, ac,  and n? what's a/g encompassed?

Choose "a only" means 802.11a radio.  This also means 802.11a/n/ac protocol.   Otherwise, create an AP Group and an RF Group.  Under the RF Group, create a new profile with all the 802.11b data rates disabled.  Attach/apply this RF Group into your AP Group.  

Thanks Leo for your response. Just follow up : so what's a/g mean? does it mean a/ac/n and g?

so what's a/g mean?

Radio 802.11a and data rates for 802.11a, 20 Mhz channel width.

Radio 802.11b but only 802.11g data rates.
