Smartphone block with clearpass

It is possible to just block smartphones from the wifi with clearpass?

I know you can block like all androids and stuff like that but i dont want to block tablets... just smartphones and thats it.

 

Is that possible?

If its how you can do that?

 

Cheers

Carlos

It won't be very accurate since the OS is shared across the devices. You can try using IF-MAP profile data but it can be easily spoofed.

Not all devices pass their name in a user agent so it will be hit or miss.

Just curious why you’d want to block one and not the other? They’re literally the same devices, just different sizes.
