# Is the zero part of a RRC filter generated signal sent?

When you use a RRC filter you add extra symbols at the end of your generated data because of the delay of the filter. When the data passes through the filter it gets up-sampled and the delay is introduced. However, the delay also introduces some zero, or near zero, valued parts to the signal, see figure. My doubt was, at the moment of sending the signal, are this parts also sent? Or you only take the non zero value parts?
