Let $N$ be a step two connected and simply connected non commutative nilpotent Lie group which is square-integrable modulo the center. Let $Z$ be the center of $N$. Assume that $N=P\rtimes M$ such that $P$ and $M$ are simply connected, connected abelian Lie groups, $P$ is a maximal normal abelian subgroup of $N$, $M$ acts non-trivially on $P$ by automorphisms and $\dim P/Z=\dim M$. We study bandlimited subspaces of $L^2(N)$ which admit Parseval frames generated by discrete translates of a single function. We also find characteristics of bandlimited subspaces of $L^2(N)$ which do not admit a single Parseval frame. We also provide some conditions under which continuous wavelets transforms related to the left regular representation admit discretization, by some discrete set $\Gamma\subset N$. Finally, we show some explicit examples in the last section.
