[Icecast] Low-bitrate audio encode/stream application

I am totally new to icecast, and would appreciate a pointer in the right 
direction. My application is to encode audio (at the linux server) at a low 
bit rate, say ~16 kbps, for transmission to a decoder at another location. 
The audio source will be bandlimited (basically voice grade circuit such as 
you'd find in a telephone application.) The decoder end (connected via a 
TCP/IP session) would be a Windows CE 3.0 machine which may be limited to 
MP3 decode format. I've looked through what documentation I could find on 
icecast and haven't seen anything that tells me how to characterize the 
audio encoding rules (how do you pick 16 kbps, 32 kbps, etc., stereo, mono, 
etc.?) Anyway, a pointer to the correct documentation resource would be 
greatly appreciated.
