Is there a way to “force” the access points to operate on only one specific 802.11 standard for a given SSID?
For instance, our wireless network consists of 4 SSIDs. The access points operate on the 2.4 GHz band only. Any device connected to any of the first three SSIDs would use the 802.11n standard on the 2.4Ghz band. However, if we connect to the fourth SSID, using any device, they would use the 802.11g standard. We tested this using smartphones, windows 10 laptops and mobile handheld devices.
Also, we are using access points model AP7522, managed by a RFS4000 controller, running 188.8.131.52-006R firmware version.

You can configure data rates under SSID settings, here is an example in both CLI and GUI:
b-only bg bgn default g-only gn custom
VX9000-Primary(config-wlan-New-Event)~#data-rates 2.4GHz g-only
