(Reuters) - Cisco Systems Inc said it would buy privately held Swedish networking software maker Tail-f Systems for about $175 million to expand its network management and automation business.

Tail-f employees will join the network equipment maker's cloud and virtualization group.

The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter, Cisco said on Tuesday.
