The parts of a switch name

Hello, I'm needing to find out about the pieces that seem to make up a switch name or version.  Using the 3560 series as an example,  why do some have WS before the 3560, as in WS-3560, why is there sometimes a C before the 3560, other times not.  Why the -PS or -TS after the number of ports ?   For example  WS-3560G-48PS.   Is there some kind of a guide or list that sorts all of this out?

Re: The parts of a switch name

I believe WS stands for Workgroup Switch and the C stands for Catalyst.

A 'P' in the Model name tends to indicate its a PoE switch.

Edit - Just noticed the thread posted above, had not come across that before
