Using band select helps manage network traffic by steering clients from the 2.4GHz band to the 5GHz band. This can reduce congestion and improve overall network performance, especially in environments with many wireless devices. The goal is to enhance user experience by leveraging the less crowded 5GHz band, which offers higher data rates and reduced interference.
