Apple's release of iOS 7.1 and iOS 6.1 for the Apple TV brings the ability to AirPlay to the Apple TV in environments where Bonjour traffic is blocked.

In the release notes for Apple TV Software Update 6.1, Apple reveals that it has added support to allow an AirPlay device to discover Apple TV over Bluetooth in environments where multicast or Bonjour traffic is blocked on the network or the AirPlay device is on a different subnet.

This will be especially useful in enterprise and education. For example, students in dorms often can't AirPlay between their devices due to network restrictions.

To give it a try, make sure your iOS device and Apple TV both have Bluetooth enabled and have been updated to the latest firmware.
