What is the between self-certification and CA certification for the device from a functionality perspective :
CA certification : We need to use the definition described certification web page at http://ehealth-spectrum.ca.com/devices/html/search_sp.html and then clicking on the Support Level column header:
The Support Level field indicates the current level of certification support provided by SPECTRUM for this device. There are two levels of certification support available: Simple and Enhanced.
Simple : This support indicates that the device is modeled using GnSNMPDev. This level of certification provides core SPECTRUM capabilities; including discovery, identification, standard MIB and trap support, standard views, interface modeling and participation in fault isolation and root cause analysis. Please see the description on Universal Device Support for additional details.
Enhanced :This is an extension of Simple support. At a minimum, Enhanced certification support indicates that support for this device has been extended with proprietary MIB and trap support. Typical extensions include proprietary OneClick views, CPU and memory device thresholding and serial number support.
Self-Certification : Similar to Simple certification done by CA except that we can change the model type to something other than GnSNMPDev
