If you are talking about wireless isolation, then they only block
multicasting. This means that you cannot discover other devices, but
if you happen to know their IP than you can communcate with them.

Some systems provide a fall-back solution that will do device discovery
via a cloud server. Qualcomm's AllJoyn/AllSeen is an example of that.
Not very EdgeNetish though.
