Long story here, but due to it being easiest to connect our Ooma Telo to an 8-port switch/hub in a different room, I did that, as opposed to connecting it either directly to an available port on our router or between the cable modem and the router.

Should the switch/hub have intelligence as far as prioritizing the needed bandwidth to support the best call quality when the Telo is in use?

If it's a switch, no.
If it's a hub, put it in the nearest trash can and buy a switch.

I have an integrated DSL monem/router with a 16 port Netgear FS-116 switch. My Telo hangs off one of the ports and works fine. The only problem you will have is if you have bandwidth intensive users (bit torrent is the worst) that need a lot of bandwidth and your connection is limited. Since most of what I do requires little bandwidth, I have had no problems.
