1. An interference mitigation tool for a telecommunications network having multiple network sites, each of the multiple network sites having a site configuration module, the interference mitigation tool comprising:
a spectrum analysis module configured to:
receive spectrum scan data from each of the multiple network sites, and
analyze the spectrum scan data of each of the multiple network sites to determine a presence of interference;
a mitigation module, comprising:
a mitigation action library including a mitigation action;
an operating restriction associated with the multiple network sites; and
a mitigation analysis configured to:
in response to determining the presence of interference in one or more of the multiple network sites, evaluate an effectiveness of the mitigation action on a neighborhood of the multiple network sites, and
apply the mitigation action to two or more of the multiple network sites based on the operating restriction and the evaluated effectiveness of the mitigation action on the neighborhood of the multiple network sites; and
an output configured to output instructions for the site configuration module of the two or more of the multiple network sites to which the mitigation action is applied in the neighborhood of multiple network sites, the instructions causing the two or more of the multiple network sites to which the mitigation action is applied to independently alter an operating parameter of the respective two or more of the multiple network sites in the neighborhood based on the applied mitigation action.
