Not sure what you mean by 8 smart boad - can you be more clear on that?

Couple of comments:

- Please note that we recommend the ESW in a Cisco Small Business type deployment with products such as UC500, SR500, AP500. Also, management is via a configuration utility GUI or CCA, not CLI as you would use for the Cisco Catalyst switches. Check this discussion which has a PDF that goes over positioning of the switches- https://www.myciscocommunity.com/message/8385#8385

- Please check the POE requirements you need against the ESW switches - check the question on at Q & A

Q. How many devices can the Cisco ESW 500 Series PoE switches power?

Not sure I follow what projectors with smart board imply but I assume they are IP devices and may need POE. The simple approach would be:

- Logon to the web gui of the ESW

- enable VLANs that you need on the switch

- tag each port as a Desktop Smartport role and define the right vlan for each port depending on your requirement
