Many wifi clients shown as " Microsoft XBOX " in one of our High Schools

    I have about 1/2 - 3/4 of a page if clients authenticated to our wifi and under the Device column that are identified as Microsoft XBOX. I did some random checking of the mac addresses and none shows as being owned by Microsoft Corp.  Clearly , we don't have students or staff using XBOXs in our campuses.  What other devices can show up as an XBOX?

    I don't have a solution, but I can confirm...

    I have seen that same behavior in my Mist home network.  My son has an iPhone SE and has the Microsoft Xbox application installed.  For whatever reason, his phone now always shows up as an XBOX.
