Same type of components
I don't think so. I don't know what is in a Hub but modern computer components run at very high temperatures.

The cpu in my laptop is idling at 53 degrees C (127.4 degrees F).
The fans start to speed up at 72 degrees C (161.6 degrees F).
Forced shutdown happens if the cpu exceeds 100 degrees C (212 degrees F) but the fans prevent that.
(circuit board like one see on PC Motherboard/ VGA boards (graphic cards), etc... are used in modern technology (high tech) with specific applications/variations
whether it is a PC or Cell phone, modem, router, dishwasher, space shuttle, LCD TV,...ooma devices .(obviously the boards used in high tech for airplanes is made of premium material... early space satellites had apple II PC-boards for controls)
Ooma devices (hub/ telo / scout) do not have fans or safeguards to control excessive temp... or to shut it down when it reaches a high level like more sophisticated devices (PC CPU,... )
The hub in question did not fail immediately but after an extended period of time ( 18 months) of being exposed all the time to a somewhat high temp : 95F-108F for a fragile circuit board can (without a good ventilation after a while) cause some malfunction/meltdown in some of the component(s)...
The worst enemy of high tech components is : HEAT.
An easy example: High tech boards use capacitors (condensers) to store, distribute and regulate electric charge which can be seen either made of solid states (alum) or flimsy /cheap material like cardboard... why ? COST! .... guess which one fails first ....
