Angle modulation is a class of carrier modulation that is used in telecommunications transmission systems.

### Phase modulation

phase modulatedPMphase-modulated
The class comprises frequency modulation (FM) and phase modulation (PM), and is based on altering the frequency or the phase, respectively, of a carrier signal to encode the message signal. The functional form of the cosine term, which contains the expression of the instantaneous phase as its argument, provides the distinction of the two types of angle modulation, frequency modulation (FM) and phase modulation (PM).
Phase modulation is one of the two principal forms of angle modulation, together with frequency modulation.

Frequency modulation and phase modulation are the two complementary principal methods of angle modulation; phase modulation is often used as an intermediate step to achieve frequency modulation.

### Polar modulation

The combination of phase modulation with amplitude modulation, practiced as early as 1874 by Thomas Edison in the quadruplex telegraph for transmitting four signals, two each in both directions of transmission, constitutes the polar modulation technique.

In general, however, when using digital signals to modify the carrier wave, the method is called keying, rather than modulation.

### Modem
