<p><b>Abstract</b>—De Bruijn graphs, both directed and undirected, have received considerable attention as architecture for interconnection networks. In this paper, we focus on undirected de Bruijn networks of radix <it>d</it> and dimension <it>n</it>, denoted by <it>UB</it>(<it>d, n</it>). We first discuss the shortest-path routing problem. We present properties of the shortest paths between any two vertices of <it>UB</it>(<it>d, n</it>) and propose two shortest-path routing algorithms, one of which has linear time complexity. Secondly, we study the transmitting problem. We establish a lower bound for the optimal transmitting time which implies in particular that the optimal transmitting problem is trivial for <it>UB</it>(<it>d, n</it>) when <it>d</it>≥ 5. We present a transmitting scheme on undirected binary de Bruijn networks <it>UB</it>(2, <it>n</it>) with transmitting time <it>n</it>− 1 for <it>n</it>≥ 5, and conjecture that the optimal transmitting time is <it>n</it>− 1 for <it>UB</it>(2, <it>n</it>), and <it>n</it> for <it>UB</it>(3, <it>n</it>) and <it>UB</it>(4, <it>n</it>).</p>
