when I try to install a software of Cisco. It failed and told me:
Total free space in CISCOTABLESPACE tablespace is 142 MB. Minimum 150 MB is required.
How can I extend a tablespace?

It is not difficult.
First, every tablespaces has one or more underlying datafiles. I will use an example here for me as 'D:\oracle\db1\data\cisco1.ora'

So you can do the following:
ALTER DATABASE DATAFILE 'D:\oracle\db1\data\cisco1.ora' AUTOEXTEND ON NEXT 25M;
(This puts autoextend on)

or you can

(This adds a new datafile of 50Mgbyte to the tablespace)

Hope this is it.

Better yet:
alter database datafile '/path/file.dbf' resize 200M;

This way, you don't have to run
alter database backup controlfile to trace;
because you've added a file and you don't have to worry about a datafile filling up a disk.
