To relocate baseband information so that it is spectrally adjacent to the high-frequency carrier. This frequency translation makes electromagnetic propagation much easier. Both transmission power and antenna size may be reduced as the carrier frequency is increased.
To provide the capability of frequency division multiplexing many baseband channels.
To increase the transmitted signal (that is, the modulated carrier) redundancy, thereby gaining a measure of immunity to the signal corruption introduced by the channel.
